Social Innovation Immersion Lab Part 1
Limited Capacity seats available

Led by Amplify 4 Good, the first-ever NetHope Global Summit Innovation Lab is an immersive and intense experience that provides NetHope members the opportunity to learn the mindset, processes, and tools used by top entrepreneurs and social innovators tackling organizational challenges.

The challenge? How can NGO's increase assessments data-sharing to improve response time during disasters by the year 2020?

Designed to build on the momentum from the Corporate Roundtable and generate innovative ideas ready to be implemented by NetHope member organizations, you’ll form small teams and are taken through a series of sprints to identify types of organizations and roles to help along with their specific pain points, root cause insights, “moonshot” ideas, and their sketches. You’ll then spend time getting real feedback and building a business case for internal implementation. Mimicking the experience of tech startups, the innovation lab culminates with all teams giving a short pitch for their solution.
