Do ever feel like you have this brilliant idea that you want to share with the world? Yet somehow, you find every excuse in the book not to because of what other people will say? Perhaps your idea has to do with making improvements in your neighborhood. Still, you’re unsure of who could best help you with your idea to turn it into a reality.
If so, then your time is Dew!
No, we’re not talking about Mountain Dew, or even the morning dew on your lawn. Dew, as quoted by their Detroit-based founders, is “a self-propagating possibility engine.” In other words, it’s a map where you can make your ideas known, specific to your community or neighborhood. Dew’s mission believes that by doing this, people become empowered to envision, describe and map change in their own cities. By using social networking to expand and mobilize growth in cities that is tangible, just and transformative, Dew is on a mission to help good ideas become realized through collaboration and crowd-sourcing.
Launched earlier this year, there have already been nine “Dewpoints” in Detroit and 16 Dewpoints in the state of Michigan. Among the most notable ideas for the city include:
The best part about Dew – there are no bad ideas. Each idea can only attract supporters and collaborators, not detractors or rejections. For best results, we recommend providing a clear explanation or background for your idea. The better you explain your idea, the more likely you are to gain supporters and collaborators.
So, if you have an innovative idea, don’t just sit on it – dew it!
