About this event

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

We kindly invites you to join our new HBS Online Official Global Community initiative, "Community Challenge"!

On the last Connext event at HBS campus in Boston, April, HBS Online office has officially announced launching a new Community initiative, called "Community Challenge".

*More detail, please find this link of official HBS Online website:


We, HBS Online Tokyo Organizers welcome you to come to join!

A part of this event will be simply recorded to show HBS Online Office in Boston and we organizers are also considering to make a list of names of positive and constructive contributors for this project on the presentation slides (*unless you don't like it.)

So don't miss this chance and please come to join us!

Detail: Brainstorming session and lunch!


Agenda: "Empowering Our Community to Help Other Communities in Need"

from the announcement here:


"In partnership with the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB), Harvard Business School Online is announcing its inaugural Community Challenge. For more than 40 years, GBFB has worked tirelessly to end hunger in Eastern Massachusetts—and now you can help the organization come closer to achieving its mission.

The Challenge:

Develop an innovative, cost-effective, scalable way for pantries to deliver food to clients. Strategize how GBFB could increase access to nutritious food by meeting those in need where they are, and outline how this solution might help end hunger in your own community.

Next Steps:

► Use the Community website to organize your event, and gather as a Chapter to brainstorm and develop a solution that is scalable, cost-effective, and keeps important factors, like food safety, at the forefront

► Create a presentation that outlines how your solution could impact GBFB and your community

► Submit your solution via email to HBSOnlineCommunity@hbs.edu by July 12, 2019

► A select group of Chapters will be featured on the HBS Online Business Insights Blog and

have the opportunity to speak directly to executives from GBFB

More About the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB): GBFB is the largest hunger-relief organization

in New England and among one of the largest food banks in the United States. In 2018, GBFB distributed 61.8 million pounds of nutritious food to those in need, and is committed to providing

at least three meals a day to every hungry person in Eastern Massachusetts. GBFB is a member of Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization. Learn more about GBFB at: gbfb.org."




FYI: Please watch the closing keynote below for your brainstorming and generating your great ideas!


"The day culminated in Klarman Hall with a keynote by Catherine D’Amato, President and CEO of the Greater Boston Food Bank, who spoke about her organization’s work to make Massachusetts hunger-free by 2028. She shared intimate details about her personal background and how it’s informed her career. As she told her story, she encouraged audience members to think about what they can do to take action and better their communities."

"The announcement of this challenge not only spoke to the theme of “Business with a Purpose,” but provided attendees with an actionable way to put lessons learned from both their coursework and the event into practice to solve real-world issues."
