JULY 9, 6PM -- Launch Night
hosted by the Central Florida Disability Chamber
at the National Entrepreneur Center

MOMENTUM is a program of civic problem solving, bringing together creative thinkers (this means you!) from Orlando's non-profit, business, and tech communities to work together over the span of two weeks with a laser-focused goal of designing break-through, high-impact solutions for community organizations that are making a difference in Orlando today.

If you're a growth hacker with some tech tricks up your sleeve, a marketer who knows guerrilla tactics, a UX mastermind who can see and connect with the customers’ journey, a designer or developer with a "we-can-do-this" attitude, an accountant who knows how to balance more than the books, we need each of you to step up. Collaborate with some great civic organizations that are making Orlando a better place for all of us, including:
*Lighthouse Central Florida -
*Orlando Together -
*Central Florida Community Arts -
*Orlando Rep -
*Community Hope Center -
*Mercy Drive Ministries -
*Florida Abolitionist -

Oh! It’s not all heads down – there will be meals and snacks and also great food for thought provided. You’ll hear and learn from some of Orlando’s true community thought leaders who will share their insight and inspiration. And you'll gain some great design thinking tools for your own organization's toolbox.

**Come out July 09** to get started. Listen, learn and then create some awesome over the following two weeks. Plan for an experience of inspiration, discovery, and exceptional people with real purpose and the distinction of making this community extraordinary.

Here’s the schedule:

Monday July 09, 6pm - 9pm
Hosted by our Community Partner, Central Florida Disability Chamber,
at the National Entrepreneurship Center

We’ll hear our MOMENTUM “challenges” brought by local nonprofits and social enterprise organizations. They will each bring a real-world need for our teams to address and share the outcomes they envision when that need is met. They’re ready to collaborate with you, the business and tech mavens of Orlando, bring your professional strengths and powerful creative thinking to identify and deliver unique solutions starting Monday evening. Before you leave Monday night you’ll have a work plan for how your team will make those desired outcomes happen. You’ll leave with assigned “ homework” and research to prepare for the first full day of onsite collaboration.

Saturday July 14 and Saturday July 21
Hosted by our Community Partner, Rally Social Enterprise Accelerator,
at Credo Conduit
These are planned collaborative work days when all teams will gather to work at Credo Conduit. Teams are welcome to schedule additional meetings of their choosing. We’ll have mentors with additional expertise and insight who will listen and provide feedback.

Tuesday, July 24
Location - (we'll reveal this soon)
All your efforts will culminate in a MOMENTUM “demo night” when each team will present their results. As on the opening challenge presentations, we’ll open the doors to the public. Bring your family and friends to cheer.
