The SC2 team lead also worked closely with a large number of community stakeholders who were enthusiastic about involvement in the SC2 pilot initiative. These partners included Community LIFT, the Greater Memphis Chamber, the mayor’s Innovation Delivery Team (funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies), and the Downtown Memphis Commission. The types of activities that these partners engaged in with the SC2 team varied, ranging from joint planning to problem-solving around federal regulations, and included both short- and longer-term engagements. Notably, the local partners typically communicated directly with the SC2 team lead, not the other team members. The SC2 team lead primarily found answers to local questions and connected local partners to federal staff that could help with specific issues.
