Grey Lee – Social Enterprise MLD 836 – 9/17/17 This assignment is looking at the solution, even though I am currently investigating my problem statement as a priority, and trying to avoid focusing on my “solution.” I don’t want to build out something that doesn’t have a strong enough problem, which might fail on the… Continue reading Civekos: Attributes and Competition
[I was working on this under the assumption that I had to limit it to one page – which led to this result. I know I could expand on these areas. See my entry from the Jason Jay “Problem Definition” workshop. Thanks!] MLD 836 Grey Lee Class 4 Workshop – Value Proposition/Solution Questions – 9/12/17… Continue reading Civekos: Value Proposition Exercise
MLD 836 Grey Lee Class 2 Workshop: Problem Definition 9/5/17 What is the specific problem you are aiming to address?

I wanted to put some of the maps in here – just to have these resources available for folks in the future. The below is the overview.

They are seeking applicants for their Social Innovation Fellowship Program – looking for new ideas… Continue reading Civekos Redux

I will indulge you in a separate entry on “Structure” – my take on the details of my strolling. One of my… Continue reading Sights of Rome!

Whew! It was actually kind of hard. A few days in Rome. With Fabio & Raquel. What a couple! And don’t forget João – he is a good kid. I arrived in Rome and immediately we had to go get ice cream. Mieko, another Burning Man connection, had been cleaning up the apartment (this was… Continue reading Fun in Rome!
I was able to get out and about a bit. I love the countryside in Italy. It is obviously similar to parts of California that I know (and vice versa!) and the comparison is irresistible.
