Time to Take Some Action in The Year of The Chicken!

Posted By on Feb 13, 2017 | 257 comments

 


Pro-Action Café has always been one of the most popular and successful workshops organized by Knowmads Hanoi.

This time was no different, as over 40 participants showed up at Moonwork Co-Working Space to give and receive support from the community for their projects. With nine callers stepping forward to pitch their projects, the first event of the Year of the Chicken for Knowmads Hanoi was a big success!

Participants were each given a question to help them check in in groups of 3 and get to know each other a little. A short introduction about Knowmads Hanoi and the coming programs was given, then… ideas and inspiration started flowing all around the room!

The nine projects which received support were:

  • An online platform to teach soft skills
  • An English course to teach interviewing skills and techniques
  • Navipi – A platform/network to navigate people and find those with appropriate skills
  • Art City – decorating old houses with art
  • A travel app that will help build bridges between people around the world
  • A class for poor children in mountainous area
  • A website for Vietnam’s nightlife
  • S-biz (business with social impact)
  • A full marketing service agency that is transparent and ethical

Conversations happened in three rounds, each round with a guiding question to help move the discussion forward. In each round, three to four participants would join the callers at each table to contribute their ideas and feedback.

In the first round, the callers along with their supporters explored the deeper story behind each of their project/idea. This helped to clarify and strengthen the intentions and purposes, the WHY behind the projects, and what make them meaningful.

In the second round, the supporters brainstormed ideas about what was still missing from the projects that the callers may have overlooked, what would make them stand out and flourish and be sustainable, and not necessarily what the callers still needed like funding, location, partners, etc.

Finally, the callers had some time to reflect by themselves before the third and last round, to figure out what are the wise next steps for their projects, then discussed with their supporters to receive even more feedback.

All in all, many new ideas and inspiration were generated, for which the callers were deeply thankful for. Many new bonds and partnerships were also formed, and promises made to continue supporting each other in their projects. There was even a job offer by one of the callers! Such was the power of conversation.
