Collaboration Cafe is where an entrepreneurial revolutionary pays for a round of coffee for a circle of entrepreneurial revolutionaries; often times another person takes the lead in describing a franchise that is ready for replication, in such events the host asks that only those most interested in this practice focus attend

Boston February 22
London February 27 to 29

also delighted to post similar notices from alumni of collaboration cafe - a process that began when I was an editor of the EU's knowledgeboard.com on Emotional Intelligence and Trust-flow, and our members network was connecting future capitals of Europe with the double joy of collaboration and entrepreneurial zest
socialbusinessclub.net would like to see a social business club flourish in every city
different cities will want a different sort of club with different membership dues, facilities
it is possible that some clubs will be created completely anew, but others will minimise costs either adding on a club to an existing facility or chnaging the focus of a hub or other center that is already operating
in cases of clubs with small revenue turnovers, we can imagine the need for the owners or management team to correctly answer a quiz based on cases of known social businesses or other materials provided by those in bangladesh with many decades experience of social busines modelling; in cases of clubs that go above a certain market size, it will likely be necessary to take an additional certification (typically one of the authorised SMBAs by Dr Yunus)
we want to adapt these rules so that certain goals are achieved:
1 wherever a city has significant Micronetworkers - we need a capacity to train up more SMBAs than MBAs
2 it is expected that much of action learning exercises of social business will have a commons licence - worldwide city clubs of socialbusiness.net have a right to expel any club that makes use of its materials expensively copyrighted in contrast to what other clubs do
3 social busienss clubs are likely to become colaboration gravities for social actions teams, including those that ultimately help design 7 microsummits going beyond today's on credit to health , media, energy/water/biomass, education, government, professions 2.0
this is version 0 - I am delighted to start Q&A that can help make this concept ready to multiply alongside our other networks by and for those serving the collaboration economy

My maternal grandad was mentored, one Bar of London qualified barrister to another, by Gandhi for over 25 years in the Mumbai region between 1920 and 1945 ish.
Gandhi's Truth transformation of the British Empire involved the three-in-on system change : to education, to media and to professions. As high court judge for the region ,grandad started by sending Gandhi to jail and ended by helping write up the legalese of India's Independence. This begs the question - which we'd always love to correspond about - where are the social networks for wholeplanet truth today? Can we network weavers co-create enough of them before inconvenient truths be they climate, banking crises , food crises exponentially crash - all over a collapsing world.
Collaboration Cafe began around 2003 not to be any of these networks but to help map where they are at be a gatesway between them finding in-guide networks to outsiders etc
Here's a bit more of our history. If you are a citizen concerned for sustainability of future generations and like the sound of our open cafe hosting network, please do tell us what you'd like to volunteer to host or ask questions.

1) if it helps as a shared identity we are delighted if anyone debating community-up projects whose knowledge is more open source than closed wants to call an event a collaboration cafe
2) historically we did start with quite a specific modus operandi; I had been volunteering on the management committee of www.simpol.org which surveys what sustanability crises national governments alone will never solve because the issues are sans frontieres, and need long-run compound corrrect decisions not short-term party political ones; having started to have a crisis 20 issues list, we thought we'd be cheeky and invite world opinion leaders on a specific community-up issue passing through london to a cafe where we basically said we cant pay you money like the confernce organiser you have come to speak to but we can search out networks for the 10 people who most desperately want to collaborate around your practices; if you will give us an hour at any time ,we'll get the people there!
that was about 6 years ago, and we soon found that the format was just as interesting if someone local had something deep to share for an hour with about 10 people;
3) over the years we have done about 100 cafes, more of the local sort than the world leader sort!; the collaboration tavern with a bit longer and food and more people seems to be the same genre to me; and we do love knowing that there are hosts in different cities who find the process worth connecting - london , new york and paris are the main places we have hosts to date but in my case the yunus impetus as someone the collaboration and system changing like I dont expect to see again is a reason where I would dream that we could NOW connect tens if not hundreds of cities informally in cummunity up hosting cafes
please ask questions or correct me- collaboration cafe is not intended to be prescriptive other than expecting to meet community-up people typically tackling issues that need worldwide scaling/replicating solutions
