Ideas Anonymous #7

Lots of fun exploring at round 7 of Ideas Anonymous last night. We looked at many ideas to make the world a better place.

Here are the ideas that were shared:

  • An App to collectively support people who are mistreated
  • Using the COVID crisis to move to a circular economy 
  • Using design thinking to support idea development
  • Ways to publish books and making event marketing more efficient
  • An interactive event series around topics everyone should know about 

My favourite quote for the night by Erwin Boermans: “You never know if you don’t ask” Keep being curious and ask for help if you need it.    

Things that came up in conversation: She’s a crowd, Good Karma effect, THNK.innovation

Upcoming Event’s: How to product innovate 10X faster at a tenth of the cost post COVID-19, Early Work Crew

Ideas Anonymous #5

Last night we had Ideas Anonymous number 5. Olga Dziemidowicz from Art by Olga, Noon van der Silk from Braneshop and Paulina Kabaczuk joined in to share their ideas. Some of the ideas we talked about were:

  • Making art more accessible through interactive videos and live streams.   
  • New ways to inspire people to live their lives to their full potential.
  • An interview series to create a showcase people’s unique perspective and inspiring new ways to look at the world.

At the end of the session we committed to produce some content to progress on our ideas, so hopefully we will be able to share at next Ideas Anonymous on Wed, April 29th. We need new ideas and social connections more than ever during this time of physical distance. Sign up here.

Some of us just started an Early Work Crew where we do 90 min of deep work from 7 am on weekdays. It’s complementing Ideas Anonymous quite nicely because it provides some structured time to work on our ideas. If you are interested read this post and join the crew on Monday morning

Have a wonderful day. Stay connected.
