About Ideas in Action

Ideas in Action is a technique that can be used in any situation to move from an idea to action or from a challenge to opportunity. This fast-paced process allows you to experiment with elements of the Entrepreneurial Thought & Action® (ET&A™) methodology to further an idea or initiative that you want to see manifested.

A person will present a challenge to the community. The full community will “gift” their insights and knowledge in furthering the challenge, by helping the presenter to take actionable next steps.

About IoT for Good Lab

Created in 2017, the IoT for Good Lab provides opportunities, resources, seed funding, and support for students to initiate and launch IoT-enabled social ventures to address the UN Global Goals by using the Internet of Things (IoT). The Lab, sponsored by a three-year grant by The Verizon Foundation, facilitates interdisciplinary teams of entrepreneurial, engineering, design, art, and liberal arts students.

About Financing the Future

In the Financing the Future series, hosted in collaboration with The Cutler Center for Investments and Finance, we will explore the crucial role of capital in driving social progress.

How will we finance our future? What new financing mechanisms are being created? What role do large corporations, NGOs, government agencies, community foundations, family offices, philanthropists and investors play? What's working? What's needed?

Investing in social progress and managing societal dilemmas is complex and takes time. It requires a new understanding, new forms of collaborative relationships, innovative financing schemes, and the moral and financial courage to put capital where the highest ROI is recalibrated and recalculated to accelerate economic and social progress.
