Promise Venture Studio will launch the first of its kind series of online, featuring interactive events showcasing the most promising innovations in early childhood development with the potential for scaled impact for children facing the greatest adversities. Show+Tell 1 will focus on Supporting Parents in the Earliest years, and will feature two hours of presentations from field innovators, organizations and experts, and will explore questions such as: what interventions have demonstrated significant health, education, and economic outcomes? What emerging science and technology can help us improve upon and scale what works? How can we meet parents where they are to embed these innovations in existing programs, systems, and communities? Check out a list of featured ventures.

Show+Tell Local Watch Parties

In addition to the virtual Show+Tell events, Promise Venture Studio is planning local watch parties in cities all over the country. Inspired by political debate parties, watch parties are small, casual, in-person get-togethers during Show+Tell. They’re designed to bring ECD communities together and create an opportunity to build momentum locally around the featured ideas and innovations. A Watch-Party-In-a-Box will be available to those interested in hosting local events, include all the essentials for easy hosting, including marketing templates, checklists, and discussion guides.
