Remember the award-winning Xfinity Innovation Think Tank at last year’s COIN Summit? Picture that but full of twenty-five millennials, traveling at 100 mph, and stopping at six cities between Los Angeles and Washington D.C. on the way.
That’s essentially what the Millenial Trains Project is. This week, the train is headed on a ten day cross-country trip to facilitate ideas of community building and social impact in LA, Austin, San Antonio, New Orleans, Atlanta, and DC. The goal of the non-profit is to introduce young innovators, change-makers, entrepreneurs, visionaries, and thought leaders to each other and into new American frontiers.
The Project’s website states that “we use trains to explore opportunities and challenges across America. We come from all walks of life. We are friends. We are problem solvers. We travel because we love learning. Together, we have fun and do our best to create things that benefit, serve, and inspire others.”
We’re inspired—and we’re also on the train. That’s right. Innovators Peak has left the station and will be following this innovation-express from coast to coast and keeping you updated with the hottest topics along the way.
In a digital age where everything can easily be found with the click of a button, this type of face to face human interaction and collaborative exploration is somewhat unprecedented for millennials. This is why we are extremely excited to be bring these developments back home to Colorado.
Stay tuned for more soon!
