Successful businesses and community leaders must give back to new, emerging ideas.
For an idea to be heard, it must be pitched in a way that is heard by the audience.The lesson: the way an idea is conveyed, and the story behind it matter.Ideas need platforms that allow them to be heard by the community.Over the past 4 years of living in a startup hub, hearing pitches, and connecting with community leaders on a daily basis, I was blown away at the Accelerate 2015 event in Cleveland, Ohio.Imagine Shark Tank meets Ted Talks, with 25 community members pitching their ideas for civic change to create positive impact in the Cleveland community.What was so unique about Accelerate 2015 was that it created an opportunity for any person in the community to share an idea in a room full of leaders and community members with the ability to help foster the idea to fruition.
Cities need to have these types of platforms accessible to the community for ideas to be heard.What I have found is that the more diverse people and skill sets are within a conversation, the more successful ideas and solutions come from those types of interactions.You never know who you will meet, and you never know who will have the missing puzzle piece that will solve your problem.I was moved in a profound way by not only the ideas, but the raw passion of the finalists to create change, and even more blown away by the support from the well-established sponsor, Bernie Moreno Companies, who ended up giving each finalist the full winning prize money to bring an idea from each category into existence for the Cleveland community.This experience fostered 5 lessons for cities that want to foster and accelerate great ideas into civic change for their communities.Ideas need people who will do whatever it takes to bring the idea to life, because they are driven by the positive impact it will have on the people it is designed to help.
