On Saturday, October 8, 2016, our Flourish SD Collective has a unique opportunity for motivated churches and leaders who want to actively learn about social entrepreneurship. This one day will be led by leaders from Impact Without Borders. Here is what you can expect...
Social innovators, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, business, nonprofit, and community leaders interested in integrating innovative tools, mindsets, and methodologies into our work.
Impact Without Borders (IWOB) will facilitate a “Rapid innovation” method that uses design principles to test new and different ways quickly (we only have one day together) to approach the challenges that exist in communities and within organizations. In this lab, participants will generate ideas and create prototypes for new enterprises or solutions to a social, community, or organizational problem.
Each of our churches will be invited to a process of learning around the question: “How might we sustainably flourish our city by stewarding the vocational gifts of our collective congregations?”
