Sketch from Louise Wilson's Sharing Failure idea on the Web Start-Up Challenge
There's been some fast and furious prototyping-moves in the Refinement phase of our Web Start-up Challenge this week! Check out James McBennett's Founder Dictionary in-progress site prototype and Cansu Akarsu's Start-Up Wallet survey for starters. Plus OpenIDEO's Haiyan Zhang is trying out an aspect of her Starter Barter concept by offering virtual office hours to web startups in need of UX, design & community building advice. There's still time left to join conversations as the shortlisted ideas evolve before we switch to the Evaluation phase next week. Get involved to be part of strengthening proposals to support web start-ups!
We have an exciting Realisation update from our Bone Marrow Challenge. The challenge sought to increase the number of registered bone marrow donors to help save more lives. A group of Stanford students have continued to pursue this goal and we're excited to share their learnings and life saving achievements so far.
Interested in student collaboration on OpenIDEO? Check this great post from our User Forums on the journey of a group of university collaborators over the past semester. We trust it'll inspire other students to join us in our collective pursuit of social good!
