Welcome to the OpenIDEO Richmond Chapter!

The OpenIDEO Richmond Chapter brings together the unique skills of our diverse city through Design Thinking driven events in an effort to give our local RVA community a voice in global issues. 

We encourage diversity and cross-discipline collaboration so that we may better advance innovation and entrepreneurship in our city. 

We know that the most impactful solutions are created when they're driven by empathy and shared knowledge.

The creation of an OpenIDEO Chapter is just one way Richmond seeks to make a difference in the world at large.

Events take place on a regular basis and center around social concerns and community issues.

"Today’s challenges require the creativity of entire networks. 

Open innovation allows people to collaborate at scale, 

and that's changing how the world solves problems.” 

Tim Brown, Executive Chair at IDEO
