HOW #OPNHOU WORKS

Open Project Night (#OPNHOU) is a monthly event convening Houston’s changemakers and collaborators around ideas for improving Houston. Through this event, people working on impact-oriented projects, ventures and solutions can connect with a mix of civic-minded designers, developers, hackers, advocates and organizers to share ideas, get feedback, and work together to achieve greater impact.

What types of projects can I find or present at #OPNHOU?
Projects previously presented include:

  • An app to increase engagement in viewing Houston’s art scene
  • A petition for Houston civic and corporate leaders to recognize the need for climate action
  • A program seeking mentors to encourage youth entrepreneurship for low income students
  • A non-profit organization that empowers black women pursuing careers in medicine

… And many, many more, from idea stage initiatives to MVPs to ready-to-scale projects.

Do I need to have a project of my own to attend?

No, not at all! In fact, #OPNHOU is most effective when we have a diverse mix of presenters and collaborators.

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 two (2) minutes to answer the following four (4) questions:

  1. Introduce yourself: What is your project, idea, or venture; and what does it aim to achieve?
  2. What stage are you in?
  3. What are your next steps?
  4. How can the community help you (with skills, connections, etc.)?
Do you provide food and/or drinks?
Yes! Impact Hub Houston provides light snacks and refreshments.
Anything I can bring?
All we want you to bring are:

  • Your curiosity and ideas
  • Materials to present your project, if you want to
  • An open mind and collaborative spirit to work with new and old friends
