LA City Innovation Team

The Los Angeles Innovation Team (i-team), is a dedicated team of strategists, designers, and data scientists reporting to the Chief Innovation Officer in Mayor Garcetti’s executive office. We are known for our out-of-the-box thinking, data-driven solutions, and relentless focus on impact. Combining research, prototyping, and testing, the team works collaboratively with partners across City departments to launch initiatives that will positively impact all Angelenos.

Since its inception in 2015 as part of Bloomberg Philanthropies’ i-team network, the Los Angeles i-team has functioned as an in-house consultancy, focused on many of Mayor Garcetti’s key agenda items, including housing and business displacement in gentrifying neighborhoods, workforce development in a changing economy, and improving LAPD recruitment and hiring practices to ensure a diverse workforce.
