Get ready, Staunton … Innovate LIVE is heading our way the weekend of April 24-26. Staunton is stunning that time of year — spring flowers and blossoming trees, soft warm breezes, and the historic downtown area just waiting for visitors. Surrounding it all are the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains. A full agenda will begin Friday morning and last through Sunday.
Organizers are excited:
Innovate LIVE is a crowd-sourced, energy-packed, festive convergence of Local Innovators, Visionaries, and Entrepreneurs.
Over three days, social entrepreneurs, community organizers, and artistic creators will converge in coffee shops, patios, and classrooms to explore the next wave of innovative ideas that are transforming our local communities. Sustainability, cooperation, the new economy, arts and music will be the lenses through which we explore local opportunities for change and evolution. Together, we will develop and share the tools to build more vibrant communities and more creative lives.
