Once a month Innovation Collective Community Leads gather local community members who many do not know exist in a community or have never heard their story. These nights of story telling and inspiration serve as a monthly connection point for community members, provide a consistent message of hope and encouragement, and reframe the narrative of a community by making an innovation economy feel accessible.
Typical Fireside Chat Speakers are local entrepreneurs, civic leaders, politicians, and even unknown citizens. Innovation Collective’s Community Leads draw out of these locals their life’s journey in order to spotlight vulnerable moments of triumph, failure, vision, and wisdom. Attendees mingle over free drinks, and make meaningful connections with other like-minded members of their community.
Coffee & Concepts
For many people technology still feels like black magic. Moreover they often do not feel like they can participate in the innovation economy. Coffee & Concepts is a unique experience where local community members discuss the latest technology advancements in a way that anyone can understand and then share their big ideas for companies, or products that they are passionate about.
Innovation Collective Community Leads then facilitate immediate connections with others in the community to meet whatever needs they have right then and there and even form companies on the spot. These high energy, bi-monthly, are free to the public and large swath of community demographics. From middle school students, to retirees, everyone is represented in Coffee & Concepts!
