IDEALAB is Dec. 8
On Dec. 8, 2016, the Haile/U.S. Bank Foundation, People's Liberty, Issue Media Group and Soapbox host IDEALAB at Rhinegeist. The morning and lunch event will focus on funding talent-led initiatives and afternoon Tour Stops include some of Cincinnati's most innovative initiatives.
The keynote speaker of IDEALAB is Eric Avner of People’s Liberty. He will share his thoughts about the philanthropic evolution between foundation and funders direct to people-led initiatives.
In addition to home-grown innovation, IDEALAB will feature pairs of funders and grantees from around the country who are exploring innovative ways to encourage community and economic development.
After lunch, the city itself will become the IDEALAB as participants are shuttled to three tour stops that highlight local efforts at collaboration and innovation.
Registration for IDEALAB is $44, which includes lunch, happy hour, an all-day streetcar pass and transportation to the off-site afternoon programs. The event is from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Funders, innovators, community activists, nonprofit organizations, students, urbanists and social entrepreneurs are encouraged to attend.
