Back in June, Technical.ly hosted “Help Plan Baltimore Innovation Week 2016” at Mt. Vernon Marketplace. We put our heads together (75 heads, to be precise) to brainstorm the best ways to improve #BIW16 (happening Sept. 23-Oct. 1). Attendees split into groups based on the week’s seven tracks (Creative, Dev, Civic, Access, Business, Media and Sciences) to bring their expertise to the table.
Here are a few ideas from the brainstorming session that have been activated since that summer night. (For a full list of ideas that came out of the event, check out our recap article.)
- On-theme public art on display during Baltimore Innovation Week.
- #Failfest for science: What researchers have learned from failure.
- Technical.ly’s Sciences Conference will be sure to touch on what’s not working within the science community. Explore Baltimore Sciences also promises many takeaways, including: What challenges are facing researchers, entrepreneurs and the institutions that support them?
- A “Solve-a-thon” that brings city government employees and the tech community together.
- Social Innovation Lab’s Impact Bootcamp has it covered.
- A look back at what successful startups have accomplished in the past five years.
- Check out the #BIW16 print mag for stories from Lead Reporter Stephen Babcock exploring the past and future of Baltimore’s leading startups.
- A developer conference that aims to create an app that helps an existing issue. Less talk, more doing.
- This sounds a lot like the Spark at Spark Hackathon.
Who knew the Baltimore community had so much to give? Spoiler alert: we did!
