OUT OF POVERTY
Reduce the number of people under the poverty line in Oregon by 175,000 in five years.
Six simultaneous design labs using customer-centered design methodology and facilitated innovation training.
The three-day design lab generated two dozen poverty alleviation innovations: Ranging from a daycare savings bank, social service aggregator map app, and a web-based sharing platform that encourages income generation and connectivity. Top ideas moved onto the MVP stage for rapid prototyping and review by the Governor and state agency heads.
