Our good friend and source of inspiration, Google, is turning 10-years and they’ve got an excellent site for their celebration. There is an informative and interesting timeline of their first ten years. Also, there’s link for their project related to their birthday, Project 10 to the 100. See the video they’ve published to get ideas that can help the most. What could be the idea of Monkey Business to submit for this competition? One of my dreams is to start a Team Academy type of initiative in Uganda, East Africa. And not only limit it to one country and continent, but to spread the idea all over the world. We’ve started in Europe all ready. There are Team Academy inspired initiatives in Bilbao; Basque Country, Heemstede; The Netherlands, Alsace Region; France, London, England. Also new ones are starting in Paris; France, Angers; France and in Mondragon; Basque Country. Oh, I shouldn’t forget the ones in Finland: Intotalo; Kajaani and ProAkatemia; Tampere just to mention couple. They ask six simple question to define the idea. Best ideas will be funded and implemented. Ok, the criteria first, and then the questions and my answers. Criteria:
Reach: How many people would this idea affect?
Depth: How deeply are people impacted? How urgent is the need?
Attainability: Can this idea be implemented within a year or two?
Efficiency: How simple and cost-effective is your idea?
Longevity: How long will the idea’s impact last?
Please help us develop the idea by commenting on the post. The deadline for submitting ideas is 20th of October so we have got about two weeks to develop this. And submit your own, too!
