"The Cleveland Foundation yesterday launched a $200,000 'civic innovation lab' to unearth, and then support, projects that can yield tangible economic impact in the community. The lab hopes to uncover ideas like the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, which works to get movies filmed here, and Bulldogs on the Cuyahoga, a group of Yale University graduates that tries to lure students from the school to work here.The idea is to scour everywhere for civic entrepreneurs.
