No chance to catch our breath this week on OpenIDEO! Just over a week into our Web Start-up Challenge, folks have shared well over 200 posts to inspire how we might support web entrepreneurs. We're still hungry for more – around our themes of Stories of Support, Day in the Life of a Start-up, Learn from Analogies and Positive Impact + Celebration of Entrepreneurship. Plenty of avenues to contribute & converse – let's tease out the issues ahead of the upcoming Concepting phase.
Our Voting Challenge has just switched from an energetic Refinement phase to Evaluation. Concept generators have been joined by others in our community to fine-tune and add more detail. Now it's time for you to join us in assessing ideas to help us decide on winners to help make elections more accessible.
With our enthusiasm for transforming ideas into impact – we're excited this week to share updates. First up – this tasty Locavore story evolving from our Local Food Challenge. Secondly – OpenIDEO's Tom Hulme talks about the journey from Open Planet IDEAS to the U+ volunteering mobile app. Hope you'll be joining us on the path to impact!
