Ideas Anonymous

Do you have an idea you would like to explore in a supportive environment?

Ideas Anonymous is a “self-help” group for people with ideas. We get together to talk about our ideas, bounce them around, give and get feedback and work out plans to implement them. It doesn’t matter what your idea is, whether it is a new business, a project around your house or a way to end the world’s poverty. Everyone is welcome to share their ideas in an open and safe environment. We explore our ideas and have fun with them. 

What is the purpose? 

 Exploring ideas with different people is a beautiful way to gain new perspectives on your ideas and on your world view. Getting diverse feedback on your ideas will inspire you to take them to places you hadn’t imagined before. Every idea you explore will expand your horizon. 

What kind of ideas do we explore? 

 We have explored ideas in lot’s of different areas, ranging from the publishing of a children’s book, over stay-home travel experiences, to building a hydro power station in Port Philip Bay. Anything really goes, no matter if it is a newfound passion, personal project, a business venture and creative art idea or plans to solve big problems like poverty or climate change.
