Get your creative juices flowing, explore your potential as a social entrepreneur, and join the fun at San Diego's first Idea Slam Workshop for the Jewish community.
Community members, innovators and entrepreneurs alike are invited to share their ideas for building and improving our community through entrepreneurial independent ventures.
The Idea Slam will consider a variety of ideas and generate new ones crowd-sourcing the strongest ones. Participants will be invited to join in a community Hackathon on 5/7/2017 to allocate seed funds to exciting projects identified during the idea slam and piloted through the year.
LOCATION: Downtown Works, 550 West B Street, 4th Floor, San Diego, CA 92101.
DATE & TIME: January 8 | 2:00-5:00 pm (networking reception from 5:00-6:30 pm)
The slam process, facilitated by PresenTense is hands on and leverages design thinking principles developed at Stanford University. Participants will be encouraged to write their ideas on sticky notes, which are then organized on the wall as “clouds” of related ideas that may be further refined as the slam process proceeds.
In May, at the Hackathon, 3 Jewish community engagement projects will be allocated seed funds from a grant by the Covenant Foundation. 2 additional projects led by Israeli-Americans or related to Israel will receive seed funds from a grant by the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation.
Project founders are encouraged to participate in both the Idea Slam on 1/8/2017 and Hackathon on 5/7/2017.
