The shortlisted ideas will be moving on to the Beneficiary Feedback phase, during which they will have the opportunity to practice human-centered design on their ideas in the field, gathering feedback in local communities and sharing key insights.
Take a moment to check out some of the shortlisted ideas and join the conversation—we encourage you to connect with others working in regions or sectors in which you are interested. Your thoughts are essential in helping the shortlisted ideas expand their potential for impact, so share your feedback, expertise and questions!
Due to the unprecedented volume of ideas, we were unable to shortlist some amazing, impactful organizations doing groundbreaking work. If you submitted an idea that isn’t moving on to the Beneficiary Feedback phase, we encourage you to continue innovating with the help of these resources from OpenIDEO. By continuing to harness OpenIDEO’s approach and engaging with like-minded collaborators, you have an opportunity to increase the impact of your idea, and even prepare it for next year’s BridgeBuilder Challenge.
Thank you so much to everyone who contributed their passion and creativity to this Challenge—we look forward to sharing updates as we move into the Beneficiary Feedback phase. If you have any questions about the Challenge process or are interested in strengthening your idea with human-centered design, contact us!
