Summer Friday Takeover
Friday, August 23, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 5:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
HAVE A FUN AND FULFILLING FINAL SUMMER FRIDAY!
The Amplify Good “Summer Friday Takeover” is a mini-hackathon meets round-robin brainstorm that gives professionals from Marketing, PR and related fields (“Amplifiers”) the opportunity to use their skills to help socially conscious startups, small businesses and nonprofits ("Purposepreneurs") with their amplification challenges.
WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU? (Hint: A LOT)
Amplifiers, you're able to flex your strategic and creative muscles, network with like-minded professionals, and meet founders of companies and organizations who are out to make a positive impact in the world.
Purposepreneurs, you'll get an afternoon of skilled professionals answering questions, generating ideas and recommending actions to help them get unstuck and get out there!
HOW IT WORKS:
[12:30-1:00 OPTIONAL session for Purposepreneurs to flesh out their immediate and longer-term strategic needs]
1:00-1:30 Meet, greet, have some nibbles
1:30-1:50 Welcome + “Purposepreneurs” give their pitches: what they do, why they do it, and where they need help
1:50-2:00 Scramble to join a small team with one of the founders you most want to help amplify (you’ll have to hustle – no more than 3 Amplifiers per huddle!)
2:00-3:15 Brainstorm - have at it!
3:15-3:30 Change groups and find a new founder
3:30-4:45 Brainstorm #2 - rock those ideas!
4:45-5:30 Group share back and Q&A
5:30-6:30 Chat, chew and cheers (in other words, cocktail time!)
SOUND GOOD? HERE'S WHAT TO DO:
Please register here and we'll shoot you the link to a simple information form. Spaces are limited and we're doing our best to have a good mix of skills and the right ratio of Amplifiers to Purposepreneurs, so we have to be selective.
If you're a fit for this event, we'll follow up with details and ask for a small donation ($20 suggested) to help us pay for costs and time. If not, you pay nothing and we'll keep you in the loop for future events and juicy updates. See, nothing to lose!
Whether for this event or another, hope to see you soon!
