Our Cities Network Seeks Founders

Hi! I am part of a movement in Brazil, the Our Cities Network, which is expanding around the world. They are looking for passionate people to start organizations aimed at using citizen participation to transforming cities into better places to live. I think you might be interested!

Check out the TED Talk by the founder, Alessandra Orofino, and the application to found a network here: http://www.nossascidades.org/en/founders.

The selected candidates will spend six weeks in residency at the Our Cities headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, and the Our Cities team will incubate each new network for up to one year. I thought of you when I saw this opportunity, please give it a look and share with anyone else you know that might be interested! Thanks so much

Last Call for Cornell Design Thinking Innovation Lab

Register for Cornell Executive Business Education’s first 2-day Intensive Innovation Lab in New York City, May 7-8. People only associate Stanford with Design Thinking, the 5-step innovation methodology that helps companies create new products, services and redesign processes (an $11,500 investment).

Now, Cornell​ will be offering executive classes teaching the methodology in NYC. A 10% discount off the $3990 fee is available for 2 or more people from a corporation and the fee is reduced to $2500 startups and nonprofits. The April 17th deadline is nearly here. I will be there as a coach and mentor.
