A large-scale, multidisciplinary hackathon centered around the new economy. Extensive mentorship & community feedback. $15,000 in seed funding for winning projects to continue for ~6 months, and the chance to showcase at SOCAP12 in October, the world's largest gathering of social entrepreneurs & impact investors.
Creative Currency is a new model for innovating & sustaining world-changing, community-driven projects.
Creative Currency aims to envision, prototype, & deploy innovative solutions that address systems of exchange in under-served communities.
The initiative will join leading developers and designers with experts in social finance, local currencies, crowdfunding, sharing platforms, job resources, & the new economy to rapidly develop tools to address critical needs in San Francisco’s Central Market/Tenderloin community.
