Helping the “other third” of the world’s population is typically not a creative, innovative or community-based experience. Therefore, an enormous amount of potential participation by the creative and technology industries goes unrealized.
An interactive idea exhibit and creative platform designed to inspire the Silicon Beach community to contribute their innovation and creativity to solve global health issues – in partnership with Cannes Chimera and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
By designing a platform, we aim to exponentially scale participation in solving global health issues. An idea exhibit that allows the problem to be crowdsourced to an entire community, where each person contributes their expertise to one or more ideas in a single session.
The PLUSx Accelerator was a success. While most organizations submitted only one idea, we were able to create, vet, improve upon, and submit 23 ideas from the Silicon Beach community in just one night. Going forward, we hope to extend this platform with Cannes Chimera and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to other communities around the world.
