Join Urban Solutions and The Idea Hive for a free interactive small business workshop experience. Participants will learn how to identify business opportunities from the environmental, social, and economic challenges of the Bay Area. We will use collaborative tools to create innovative products and services that address local needs. A strong emphasis will be placed on the advantages inherent in working together to solve complex problems in our businesses and communities. The workshop will bring together sustainability, systemic thinking, and the entrepreneur into an experiential learning lab.

Urban Solutions is an economic development non-profit based in San Francisco. Our mission is to foster the well-being of disadvantaged communities by helping to increase neighborhood commercial vitality, strengthen small businesses, create jobs and encourage diversity.

The Idea Hive is a collection of current and former MBA students in Dominican University's Green MBA program. They are experienced facilitators of systemic thinking workshops on sustainability. Their techniques are based on the work of Bruce McKenzie of the Systemic Development Institute.
