Are you passionate about making a difference in Miami?
Ever wonder how might we generate more social innovation in our community?
‘Prototypes That Matter’ is a design-thinking event where you will let your creative juices flow, meet great people, and build solutions that make a difference for our community while having fun. This fast-paced event will make you flex your innovation muscle by tapping into your creative problem-solving skills, getting you to build, to think, and test your ideas. You will work in small teams to conceive and build novel solutions that reduce waste and create prosperity in Miami.
This event is about doing and showing rather than telling. Our aim is to inspire you to think and work differently, and to take what you learn from this experience to your work and community. What you create may also be something that local organizations can use to amplify their social impact.
Whether you’re a social entrepreneur, nonprofit leader, professional in the tech/design/finance fields, or a civic and community-minded citizen, we invite you to join us for an action-oriented, hands-on experience of innovation!
