The next edition of #hatch is happening tonight!
WHERE: Supermarket, 268 Augusta Ave. in Kensington Market.
WHEN: Monday April 2nd at 6:30pm
WHAT: #hatch is a night that brings together people from all walks of life who have different skills, experiences and interests. It allows 10-15 people to share an idea, project, business plan, etc. with the greater group and have brainstorming sessions to problem solve any issues they are encountering.
1.) Come out to the Supermarket, try to be on time as we like to have everyone there to hear all of the idea’s pitches at the beginning of the night. Grab a beverage or some food if you’d like, mix, mingle…
2.) The first round of “ideas people” (5 people to start) have two minutes each to tell the larger group who they are, what their idea/challenge/project/etc. is all about and the issues they are facing or the direction they are trying to go in. This is an opportunity for the whole group to listen to all 5 ideas and decide which one they are going to generate towards when we split up into smaller groups.
3.) We break up the room into 5 sections, each “idea person” has a section. The larger group decides which person they want to go to and they go there!
4.) We go through a 25-30 minute discussion, problem solving, idea generating session whereby the group has an opportunity to ask more questions, point out potential challenges, share experiences and, ultimately, come up with the best steps for the “ideas person” to take moving forward.
5.) The “ideas person” stands in front of the group again - this time to present what happened in their session and to share their solutions and plans for next steps.
AND THEN WE DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!
This is a great way to meet new people, expand your mind and have an afterwork beverage. You don’t have to have an “idea” to come, just bring your life experience!
