Prototyping the Organization
How do you become an intrapreneur in an existing organization? Tasked with building the Interactive department at the Tribeca Film Institute to fund and support new forms of storytelling, Kopp wanted to introduce some of the startup spirit of entrepreneurship into this new initiative. This became an always-in-beta approach to experimentation and collaboration – with creators, audiences and colleagues. Kopp’s team created TFI Interactive and discovered the potential for inter-disciplinary collaboration between filmmakers, journalists, artists, gamers, coders, designers and activists. They ran our first storytelling hackathons and learned about prototyping, design thinking and user experience design. They funded interactive projects and learned, alongside our grantees, how to conceive, create and distribute new kinds of non-fiction work that connects with audiences. All of this is a process of continual discovery that enables them to respond to an every-shifting digital world while innovating from within. It was also really fun!
