Community Innovation Challenge

Coffee House

Community Innovation Challenges are creative “design labs.” People from different sectors brainstorm ways to solve a host of social problems that the community has identified. This event will tackle the ecosystem.

$2,500 will be awarded to help ideas generated at this challenge get off the ground. In the true spirit of a Community Innovation Challenge, community participants decide which projects will be given money. The funding is provided by Mission & Service.

BONUS: The biggest prize will be the relationships you build, the stories that you hear and collaborations you experience.
