Problem

How can we enable and implement ideas derived from hack-a-thons?

Solution

Designed for doing. Developed a detailed post-hack strategy that tackles partnerships, promotion, programs, and resources.

What happened

Developed and executed a posthack strategy designed to move from ideas to implementation of prototypes, while using the opportunity to beta test Canadian Nureva Span technology.

“It is absolutely exciting that the Innovation Lab’s expertise has come on board. Thanks to the Lab, we will have a post hack strategy that will help us in the long term to see some of these ideas incorporated into the way homeless services are funded.
