Going for the Gold

On Monday, Jonathan Lewis, Founder and CEO of the Opportunity Collaboration, posted an article to the Huffington Post about next month’s Assets Learning Conference. In the article, Jonathan describes one of the centerpiece events of the ALC, the Innovation Marketplace, as “a kind of Olympic finals for good ideas for ending poverty in America.”

The write up, for which we’re incredible grateful, highlights the Assets Learning Conference as one of the premier events in the field, touting its unique content and how it stands apart from other conferences. It goes on to describe the interactive showroom featured by the Innovation Marketplace and even highlights the work of Innovative Idea Champion Ramón León. Ramón was recently awarded the Opportunity Collaboration Fellowship for his work with the Latino Economic Development Center in Minneapolis.
I can’t quite do the Huffington Post article justice as Jonathan’s witty writing style reads much more eloquently, so make sure you check out his post. While there, leave some feedback.
Oh…and one more thing…my favorite line: The Assets Learning Conference “[…] the name is not exactly a heart-pounder, but the content will make your blood race.”
