Open Project Night – 9th Edition (Impact Hub Houston & Sketch City)
February 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CST
Connect, Collaborate, Innovate – Open Project Night hosted by Impact Hub Houston and Sketch City at the amazing Black Sheep Marketing Agency.
Open Project Night is a monthly event convening Houston’s changemakers and collaborators around projects that improve the city of Houston. Each month we connect a mixture of passionate problem solvers who are working on projects and ventures that combat social challenges in our city with a mix of collaborators, individuals, and partners to work together to achieve greater impact.
What kind of projects are we talking about? Past projects included:
An app to increase engagement in viewing Houston’s art scene
A petition to encourage Houston civic and corporate leaders to recognize the need for climate action
A mentorship program seeking mentors to encourage youth entrepreneurship for low income students
A university group looking for volunteers to support a major fundraiser
A non-profit organization that empowers black women pursuing careers in medicine
And many, many more all the way from idea stage to well built out projects and initiatives.
Do I need to have a project of my own to attend?
No, not at all! In fact OPN is most effective when we have a mixture of collaborators and presenters. Come if you are:
Keen to meet different people who care about making Houston a better place.
want to work together with others to make changes happen in your area
want to find out about volunteering and work opportunities
want to find volunteers or recruits for your project
What does each presenter need to prepare?
Each presenter has exactly 2 minutes to answer the following questions 4 questions: (1) Introduce yourself + What is your project, idea, or venture and what does it aim to achieve? (2) What stage are you at? (3) What are your next steps? (4) How can the community help you (skills, connections needed, etc.)?
What should I bring?
Materials you need to workshop / present your project
Your ideas & inspirations
A collaborative spirit to work with new + old friends
Do you provide any food/drinks?
Yes! We provide light snacks and refreshments. Buff Brew also graciously sponsors OPN!
