Join Urban Solutions and The Idea Hive for a free interactive small business workshop experience. Participants will learn how to identify business opportunities from the environmental, social, and economic challenges of the Bay Area. We will use collaborative tools to create innovative products and services that address local needs. A strong emphasis will be placed on the advantages inherent in working together to solve complex problems in our businesses and communities. The workshop will bring together sustainability, systemic thinking, and the entrepreneur into an experiential learning lab.
