Calling movement-makers, cat-herders, and anyone trying to use the power of the crowd to co-create an outcome…

… are you struggling to grow your collaboration, not seeing any collaborative activity or simply not sure where to start?

Join us for a half-day workshop for a practical look at how to use the principles of collaboration to scale an idea or project from 2 to 2,000,000. Using your idea or project, you’ll work with others to learn how to use basic and more advanced principles of collaboration to take your initiative or idea to the next level.


Project owners and intrapreneurs in government and large corporations
Leaders of social startups, movements and community-based projects
Coordinators of networks, membership organisations and communities of practice

Through stories from the coalface, participatory activities, and Collabforge’s proven approach to scaling collaboration, you will learn to:

Find and attract the right collaborators
Develop a shared direction for your collaboration
Inspire collaborators to maintain momentum and deliver on outcomes
Reduce risk, distribute responsibility, and establish accountability
Maintain adaptability in planning how to scale

During the workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to develop your unique idea, challenge, or project, identifying:

Where you are on your collaborative journey
How to break your journey into manageable ‘experiments’ using lean startup thinking
The biggest risks and assumptions in your current process and idea
Your audience at different scales (cohorts)
How to get your audience collaborating without having to tell them how using principles of stigmergy
Your next step


At the end of the workshop you’ll have:

  • A set of new ideas, approaches and tools for collaboration
  • Received genuine feedback on your initiative from others facing similar challenges
  • A growth plan for your idea, project or initiative
  • A plan for what you need to do tomorrow

Stories, approaches and frameworks presented in the workshop will be published openly on, for you to review and share.

Limited spaces of 20 per session. Tea, coffee and light snacks will be provided. The event is hosted by Collabforge, and proudly sponsored by Hub Melbourne.
