Are you ready to become an AddVenturer?
At our last #AddVentureBrum Weekend on 13-14 May 2017, three prototypes were developed to support a need in the community.
It is weekend community hackathon utilizing human centred design thinking to define and understand community needs and challenges, to co-develop and test prototypes and solutions. It is collaborative space to enable social innovation and make collective impact in communities.
Why social innovation? The process of social innovation consists of re-creating existing models and building entirely new solutions to satisfy unmet human needs; above all, it aspires to select and execute the right ideas, and bring them into the community in record time. We do this by collaborating with the community, using human centred design methodology.
Five social innovation solutions were developed during the #AddVentureBrum Weekend in November 2016. Click here to check out the video.

"I remember when I first heard the words Future Leaders Club. It was my first day back at work after maternity leave. My manager at Fitnniss came to me and said "Sarah research Future Leaders Club, we are one of the sponsors at the Local Leaders Awards 2016, get to know them.” It's safe to say I spent that day in awe and extremely excited to be working alongside such an amazing organisation.
Fast forward almost 12 months and I'm still just as excited and thrilled to be involved with Future Leaders Club. I attended the first ever Addventure Brum Weekend in November 2016 and WOW! What a fun, exciting, inclusive, invigorating and all round ace weekend! It allowed me to develop skills, learn new skills and most importantly develop new friendships; long lasting friendships.
I am now a Future Leaders Club Ambassador and couldn't be more proud.
Get yourself enrolled on the next weekend! You will not regret it.”

There was a good team spirit and I think everyone got on with everybody.
