It all starts with a weekend-long event that brings together passionate community members to develop sustainable solutions to our most pressing social issues.
Have an idea? Come ready to share, or submit a partially-vetted idea ahead of time.
Don’t have an idea? No worries. Bring your expertise and work ethic.
Share your idea and get inspired by 50+ other ideas.
Teams will form around the top ideas pitched on Friday night.
Was your idea one of the top voted? Rally a team around it!
Or, join another team forming around an idea you’re energized by.
Use Design Thinking and Lean Startup principles to make iterative and informed decisions.
Spend most of the weekend building with your team.
Teams will do user validation, develop a business model, and create a minimally viable product (MVP).
On Sunday evening, teams will pitch what they built to the community and judges.
Judges will decide which ideas receive funding and in-kind resources to move forward.
Got funding? Congrats! Keep making progress.
Didn’t receive funding? There are still great resources and opportunities to help you continue on.
Resources, connections, and an alumni community will help you get to the next level, whether it’s an accelerator, more funding, pursuing a new social impact idea, or getting involved.
