Video Feature: IDEALAB, George Jacobsen & Phillip Cooley

On Dec. 8, developers, nonprofits, philanthropists and community members gathered for the first ever IDEALAB, presented by Soapbox Media and Issue Media Group.

Eight panelists from Cincinnati, Denver, Detroit and Minneapolis presented their ideas, projects and best practices, followed by a keynote address from Eric Avner of The Haile Foundation. Attendees then went on a tour to hear about three Cincinnati projects: the Hellmann Creative Center; the educational partnership between Cincinnati Children's Hospital, Cincinnati Public Schools and StrivePartnership; and the food innovation district vision for Findlay Market.
Watch the first three resulting videos below, and stay tuned as Soapbox presents more videos from IDEALAB in the coming weeks. (Videos are courtesy of the Soapbox partners and local documentarians, CincyStories.)
