Innovation Marketplace Burning Questions: Tom Foley
By Sean Luechtefeld on 08/30/2010 @ 01:20 PM
The Innovation Marketplace, hosted by innovation@cfed and sponsored by the Levi Strauss Foundation, brings together leaders at the cutting edge of social innovations that expand economic opportunity for all Americans in a virtual and in-person interactive venue.
To stimulate discussion before the in-person installment of the Innovation Marketplace, innovators will pose their burning questions - questions about challenges facing their ideas - in order to solicit feedback from the public. The Innovation Marketplace is designed to discuss these challenges, and sharing the questions before the Assets Learning Conference will help prolong that conversation in hopes of making it as robust as possible.
innovation@cfed extends a special thanks to Tom Foley for sharing his questions and allowing the conversation to start even before the ALC! Be sure to check out Tom's Innovation Station for Assets for Artists at the Conference. In the meantime, use the comments section below to provide feedback.
- How can the asset building community help address the punitive nature of asset limit restrictions in benefit programs?
- How can we change a culture of economic oppression to one of economic expectation?
- Many people with disabilities FEAR the loss of their meager benefit entitlements. How can we better message opportunity and hope?
