During the meetup anyone can have 60 seconds to announce an event, program or opportunity available to others and then 10-15 minutes to lead small discussion/breakout groups to share more details and information about your update with curious attendees. If you are interested, you’ll need to let us know in advance. Please submit your information via the online form by end of the day, on the Tuesday EOB before the meetup.

Moonshots Working Groups: lead discussion and project groups

Have a project? Want to lead a discussion? In advance of the Meetup: let us know if you are interested in leading one of these groups:

Moonshot discussion groups: You or a representative can volunteer to lead a discussion about a project idea that connects to a Moonshot; either how it serves to demonstrate challenges related to the area, or how it demonstrates a solution to those challenges. Discussion groups allow you to invite input from other Hivers.

Moonshot project groups: in this area of activity, you would present the project and pieces of work or tasks that others can help with. This might be drafting, designing, communicating, reviewing, etc. The goal would be to help others contribute to the work. In this format you can facilitate an engaging share-out of your project while also getting something done! Ideally, this is work that could be brought back to meetups monthly.


September Meetup Recap

The September meetup was amazing.  Although we bid farewell to Operations Coordinator Ann Marie, we welcomed the addition of new projects within our portfolio!  These projects received funding from round 2 of the 2017 funding cycle. Funded Project Showcases are instrumental in fostering collaborative environments by sharing learning experiences, best practices and inviting partners. If you are interested in learning more about currently funded projects- check out the Showcase Slide deck it includes project and contact info for all 2017 Round2 Funded Projects Showcased last month.  Click here to view the Showcase Slide deck.

In addition, Think Tank and Quality of Life shared updated information about their moonshot initiatives.  Check out last months slide deck to see what you missed!
