Our Services

 
PLACE MANAGEMENT A place is defined by a lot more than the walls or structures that delineate it. Place management is the process of working with the people that live, work and play in a space to create the communities that bring these places to life. What’s actually involved in place depends on the project. There might be a central service, such as a café or similar hospitality venture, which Sprout and will then design, staff and set up. Usually there are events, activities and initiatives, tailored specifically to the needs and preferences of the community, which the Sprout team create and manage. The end goal is to empower the community to do all this themselves, resulting in sustainable, successful and enlivened places, driven by those that inhabit them.

EVALUATION A good project can’t be successful until you’ve got the data to prove it. Sprout Ventures can develop project-specific frameworks to measure social impact, and have the evaluation tools to determine what that data means. We regularly survey the stakeholders involved in our projects, and have systems for monitoring digital engagement, including on social media, and on our community ap. From this, we can get the testimonials, numbers and percentages that will demonstrate how your project is making a difference.
