We would like to thank everyone who participated in the ClimateSpark Social Venture Challenge, from our contestants who bravely put their ideas forward to the thousands of community members who provided valuable feedback. Thanks also to the voluntary experts who participated online and helped mentor our finalists at the ClimateSpark Accelerate bootcamp. And thanks to everyone who came out to the ClimateSpark Launch Gala to help celebrate the great ventures that participated in the Challenge. Finally, a big thank you to all of our sponsors who supported the idea that social ventures can make a big contribution to building a healthy, low-carbon city.
ClimateSpark is an evolving social innovation tool and in the spirit of collaboration and learning that that represents, we are pleased to release our final report on the ClimateSpark Social Venture Challenge. We hope this report will be useful to anyone involved in open collaboration processes. We certainly learned a lot and are already thinking about where to take ClimateSpark next.
