The Barger Leadership Institute and The London Idea are thrilled to announce the 2018 London Idea Project – Venue Tourist! Venue Tourist is a 3D modeling service lead by Connor Tullis and Sven Wollschlaeger that offers a fully customizable virtual tour experience for venues seeking new customers.
In 2017 The London Idea Foundation formed a partnership with the BLI to fund, mentor, and develop a London Idea Project - a small group of proven undergraduate student leaders with a strong foundation of an idea to build. The student team selected as the BLI Capstone Experience - London Idea Project will benefit from specialized support for their action plan as well as a Mentorship Network and Summer Immersion Program led by The London Idea
BLI Capstone Experience
The Capstone Experience cultivates evidence-based leadership among student teams as they pursue significant collaborative projects over the course of eight months. BLI has selected nine undergraduate teams to take part in the 2018 Capstone Experience in Evidence-Based Leadership. Read more about the Capstone program, and the selected teams here. The Capstone Experience kicks off next week during a week-long boot camp. During boot camp, teams will attend workshops, receive coaching, refine their written proposals, and then present their project to a panel of leaders and honored guests before embarking on the research and implementation phases of their projects.
The London Idea
The London Idea was created to celebrate the legacy of Adam London, a 2011 graduate of the University, majoring in Organizational Studies. He was an innovative ideator, a passionate creator, and an avid explorer. He spent much of his life encouraging his friends, family, and coworkers to pursue their ideas and follow their passions. Adam was a connector — he masterfully connected people with common interests in order to facilitate the fruition of their individual ideas. He worked in the tech world but loved reading hard-cover books, watching movie trailers, traveling the world taking photos, and collaborating over a good cup of coffee. Ultimately, Adam was trying to understand people, how they think, how they create ideas and how he could encourage them to pursue their goals.
The London Idea Foundation continues Adam’s work connecting people and ideas. The Foundation Board and membership consist of creatives, professionals, entrepreneurs, and connectors dedicated to bringing to life great ideas from across the spectrum — ideation, creation, or exploration— to life.
