Thanks for facilitating a Popup Think Tank for Gutter Punk Coffee! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was amazing. I came away really refreshed, encouraged, and energized. It’s a great model.

HOW WILL I PREPARE FOR MY EVENT?

You will work with your host and facilitator to pursue your goals - before, during, and after your event. We also created a short online course that will help you get the most out of your event. Access tools and frameworks for inviting your family, friends, network, and community to learn about your project. Everything you need to get the most out of your event. 

 
 
 
 

WHY IS THIS FREE?

We've been there. We know what it's like to get a new project off the ground. Also, we live in the wealthiest nation on the planet and there should be a way to sustainably help new projects get started at no cost to the difference makers. And that is the motivation of our network of facilitators: they desire to help others on their journey to make the world a better place.  

 
 
 
 

ABOUT THE "WAITING LIST"

To meet the growing demand, we are now training a network of facilitators to plan and host Popup Think Tank for projects like yours. However, projects are not matched on a first-come, first served bases. Rather, these collaborations are based on shared values, geography, and mere logistics. We encourage you to apply immediately.
