      Business and non profit leaders, artists, innovators,
      and those who live, work, and play in Nola
      will converge to prototype new shared value.

      What would it look like for our community to work closer together
      with our local businesses and nonprofits?
      What are concrete opportunities to interconnect our super powers?
      How can we help each other succeed?

      Join us% and a growing list of participating organizations in
      a prototyping exercise to answer these questions in collaboration.
      And explore with us the possibilities for making these prototypes real.

      We encourage you to come with 3 questions in mind:

      How can I participate?

      What's in it for us?

      What's in it for me?


      After the prototyping session, celebrate usConverging! 
      Local performers and food makers will share their flavors of equity and sustainability with us%.


      Participate!

      About usConvergence

       

      To pilot the us% model, we are usConverging 21 localized communities across the United States finding opportunities to create new shared value. 

      The community will select innovative ideas for products and services to be made in collaboration during the usContest in September. 

      On September 28-30, leaders and innovators across economic sectors will celebrate the winners of the usContest and participate in a 3-day festival to prototype collaborative ventures to make the products and services from the usContest. Register to attend here: http://usconvergence2012.eventbrite.com/

      usProduction teams will come up with a business model on their collaborative venture: a path to launch, a website with a 2-min video, and an investors deck - all made in collaboration at usConvergence.

      Technology is the backbone of usConvergence. We are very thoughtfully developing an ideas processing platform to expedite the submission and selection of ideas in collaboration. The usProduction teams will continue the work using Teambox.com to collaborate and bring prototypes to market. Work needed for the usProduction will be distributed online, giving everyone an opportunity to participate.

      Finished products and services are sold to be shared and the revenues are 30% for community, 30% for environment and 30% for profit.

      Participate!
