One of the OpenGov Hub's founding anchors, Global Integrity, held an "Ideathon" for its newly launched Innovation Fund. The event took place in the Hub office space on Thursday, November 1st from 6.30 - 8.30pm and brought together around thirty people in the Washington area to discuss and share their innovative ideas that they hope might get picked up by the Innovation Fund.
Global Integrity's Innovation Fund is investing up to $10,000 in brand new, never tried before ideas targeting the challenges of transparency and accountability. The two-hour long “Ideathon” was designed to help individuals and groups flesh out ideas in order to submit them to be considered for funding.
The deadline for submission is Friday, November 16th 2012.
