Startup Weekend Blue - Themed event focused on the Blue Economy in Southeastern Massachusetts
We ran an ideation workshop on the evening of November 5, 2015 and March 9, 2016 to get people thinking about the opportunities and challenges of the Blue Economy. The result of this interactive brainstorming session is a set of concepts that can be pitched at Startup Weekend Blue. Here are the notes from the session: http://www.up.co/communities/usa/semass/blog/2015/11/05/blue-economy-ideation-session We'll have another ideation session just before SW Blue on 3/30 if you'd like to attend and try out ideas.
These Listening/Encouraging sessions leading up to this Startup Weekend Blue event is to get folks thinking and talking about Blue Economy ideas that could turn into pitches for businesses.
