Seam Social Labs
21st Century Economic Justice


We are always learning. From reading case studies from think-tanks like The Urban Institute to engaging with users of The Point on Main Street Alliance Network, we stay in conversation with a community of downtown based changemakers to gain insights.

Occasionally, when we come across a big question that is relevant or recurring we do some investigation to develop a whitepaper on Oursights on the perspective. While insights are critical, we use in-person interviews, focus groups, and methods such as six design hats to understand broader perspectives on a subject matter.

We Are Recruiting: The Freelance Collective.

The Seam Social Labs community consists of our partners [read clients], our internal team [full and part time staff], and our Freelance Collective. Each of us are united under a common goal of establishing thriving, human centered communities with cultural character.

The Freelance Collective is a passionate and tight-knit community of top-tier freelance associates and entrepreneurs with diverse skills that support our client-based work. Members of the Freelance Collective regularly receive customized project listings and can apply with a Seam Social Labs profile they only have to complete once. Benefits include early access to city-based RFPs, monthly community events, Annual Social Innovation sprints to build skills and community while solving real-world social problems, and a variety of deals and discounts on products ranging from conference spaces to laptops.
