Tuesday was a snowy night in New York – yet the OpenIDEO NYC Tweet-up still managed to pull a decent handful of socially innovative types together. OpenIDEATORS Nicole Skibola and Demian Repucci were joined by others to discuss crowdsourcing platforms, social activism and more. In good company with folks involved in law, strategy, design and international development was a former NYC cab driver who these days is pursuing a PhD in law for social enterprise! Interdisciplinary muscles were flexed as cocktails warmed the group against the chill outside.
We're off to the White House this week to present the Innovation Challenge agenda to the i20 Summit of global innovation leaders. We'll have more to report about this next week and winning Agenda Concepts will be up online very soon. The Sanitation Challenge is in evaluation phase – do come help us decide how we can improve sanitation and better manage human waste in low-income urban communities.
And we have a brand new challenge being hatched plus a slew of new features coming your way soon.
