    Innovate LIVE

    Innovate LIVE

    Innovate LIVE is a crowd-sourced, energy-packed, festive convergence of Local Innovators, Visionaries, and Entrepreneurs.

    Staunton Street

    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.

    The open-air format includes interactive workshops hosted by successful entrepreneurs, keynotes from leading change-makers, funding forums for new projects, and laid-back evenings for odd minds and young ideas to mingle.

    The festive convergence will be held on the streets, in the schools, and among the restaurants, bars, and coffee shops of historic downtown Staunton, Virginia.

    Come for the inspiration, stay for the local food, music, and community. We are ready to play.
