Springboard Social Innovation Forum: HATCH: A New Approach to Incubating Community Innovation
March 10th 2010 Springboard Social Innovation Forum: Hatch: A New Approach to Incubating Community Innovation Who: Springboard Innovation hosts its monthly Social Innovation Forum on Wednesday, March 10th 2010, from 6-9pm. There is limited space for this month’s event, so RSVP is REQUIRED.
What: At the March Springboard Social Innovation we’ll be addressing innovative physical spaces. By creating an active idea laboratory, shared workspace, specifically designed educational programs, appropriate tools, and needed expertise, we can cultivate innovative technology- and service-based solutions to shared problems using newly collaborative, enriched strategies that can be replicated in diverse settings globally.
Together MotiveSpace Coalition and Springboard Innovation are creating HATCH, a physical space that will serve as an active laboratory and incubator for community innovation and will foster an entirely new operating system between individuals, organizations, community, tools, and place. The space will offer classrooms, tools, programs, and experts who will work together to solve local and global problems. Tenants of all sectors will work in close proximity in a shared work space that fosters collaboration, community, and participation to generate social and ecological solutions. Join in the conversation and talk with us about HATCH!
Join us for a “working Forum,” where we’ll discuss HATCH and the potential role a physical space can play in solving social and environmental problems.
Mark your calendars now and RSVP today! Space is limited.

About The Social Innovation Forum The Springboard Social Innovation Forum offers a monthly event designed to support those interested in creating a better future. Our focus is to help practitioners or potential practitioners of social projects push beyond discussion and debate into action. Each Forum will inspire and teach with ideas, powerful role models, and stories. Speakers, content experts, panels, and workshops will help you improve your strategies for planning and launching effective social ventures. The Forum will create a context to connect, learn, and take action around ideas that lead to tangible change—all in a venue designed for building community. The Forum is intended to attract people with a wide range of experience and backgrounds, but with a common interest—making a difference. If you are getting tired of waiting for someone else to step up to take on issues you care about, come see how this can be a place to make a difference, here or around the world. We invite people from both the business and non-profit community—investors and activists—to join in, work together, and make this a model for other cities to adopt.

Through a process of “innovation incubation” we help community members launch social change organizations and programs. We invite you to be involved in our newest initiative for change.
