Heidi Cuppari cofounded Dream Tank, a social impact accelerator and think tank for children, after she saw a demand for the youth voice in social entrepreneurship. Heidi believes it is voices like those of 11-year-old guest Amelia Rose Battle who truly have the answers to the world’s problems.
Co-host David Cohen and guest Heidi Cuppari discuss how she cofounded Dream Tank to truly tap into the radical imagination of children. What started as an experiment five years ago is now a place where kids, such as guest Amelia Rose Battle, can help make the world a better place.
Listen as Amelia shares her experiences working with Dream Tank. This includes how they created a VR experience to help veterans adjust to regular life after serving and learning how to support Dream Tank and promote youth entrepreneurship.
