Every year GTECH tests new ideas and innovative solutions with partners to transform blighted, vacant land into community assets. These ambitious projects produce creative solutions and products to tackle social issues and offer new ideas for wide-scale change. As social entrepreneurs our vision is to help Pittsburgh become the most innovative city for addressing vacant land and community disinvestment.
GTECH’s Entrepreneurial Spirits event celebrates and supports our ability to trial new ideas and test innovative solutions for fighting blight and vacancy. The celebration will showcase our history of applied innovation projects and partners, while raising support for GTECH to innovate and test future ventures. This year we’re partnering with Wigle Whiskey to offer an evening of inspired libations; including experimental brews, hopped whiskey, local food and great conversation at the Wigle Whiskey Barrel House.
Applied Innovation is GTECH’s program to research and develop new tools, partnerships, and value added products to improve the social, environmental and economic health of communities. The program has grown since piloting growing hops on vacant land, to building outdoor classrooms with Green Playces and launching an interactive online resource for reclaiming vacant land through Lots to Love.
Tickets for the 2016 event are $25 and include:
