Young Professionals Form Teams To Generate Creative Strategies
That Increase Contributions From HBCU Young Alumni
Amplify 4 Good and HBCU SpringComing have teamed up for the 2017 HBCU SpringComing Innovation Lab, a fun and intensive rapid problem-solving lab based on design thinking. The objective is to come up with new ideas to entice HBCU alumni under the age of 40 to make contributions to their school. Held at Twitter’s NYC office, HBCU alumni will form 5-6 person teams and work with industry experts on innovation principles and methodologies. HBCU Innovation Lab concludes with a Pitch Competition where each team presents their ideas to the audience, and members of the winning team win prizes.
