Evaluation

What an amazing Concepting round! We were so excited about the diversity of your ideas and now it's time for you to help us with Evaluation. As we wrapped up the last phase, our OpenIDEO team met with Grameen Creative Lab for a cross-continent discussion between Colombia and California. Together we reviewed all of the concepts and chatted about the different challenges and opportunities the Grameen team is facing. The big question we wanted to answer? Which concepts have the best chance to significantly impact life and health in Caldas? To learn more about our process and check out the list of Honorable Mention concepts –  head over to Field Notes. We're super psyched to unveil our Top 20 Shortlist and hope you enjoy reading through them in detail to evaluate them.
