Benjamin Doda is currently raising money for a improved open space access for his fellow residents in Manalapan, New Jersey.

In a LinkedIn article, he describes how small businesses can help to improve their communities by creating urban living labs:

  1. Using the opportunity of urban living lab experiments to achieve business goals;
  2. Working with other community stakeholders to develop solutions; and
  3. Thinking outside the box and finding ways to excite community members / potential customers.
