In one sentence, please describe what your organization does.

:

Our company Colossi is about creating interactive games for giant screens, like at sports events and other venues, where the whole audience can play at once, replacing the traditional non-interactive content that usually takes place.

In one to three sentences, please describe your proposal.

:

We will increase attendance to major league sporting events by bringing in our technology which allows everyone old and young to come together and play a game. By having them actively participate where normally they would just watch some static content, we increase the chance they will come back and bring others.

Where will you be working? Please be specific (e.g. Third Street Middle School; Boyle Heights; LA County).

Central LA

East LA

San Gabriel Valley

San Fernando Valley

South LA

Westside

How will your proposal improve the following “Play” metrics? (check all that apply)

Access to open space and park facilities

Number of children enrolled in afterschool programs

Per capita crime rates

Percentage of residents that feel safe in their neighborhoods

Attendance at major league sporting events

Residents within 1⁄4 mile of a park (Dream Metric)

Number of residents with easy access to a “vibrant” park (Dream Metric)

Number of parks with intergenerational play opportunities (Dream Metric)

Number (and quality) of informal spaces for play (Dream Metric)

Describe in greater detail how you will make LA the best place to play.

:

We will create incredible interactive experiences that will bring together crowds, of anywhere from 2 to 20000 people, of all ages, races, and gender. By utilizing the universal power of play, we will engage Los Angeles sports fans in a truly unique way, giving them an experience they will never have had elsewhere.

We will then utilize the engagement to increase attendance rates at Major League Sports events by having our games only at sports events and by working with Los Angeles teams specifically to brand them.

Please explain how you will evaluate your work.

:

We will evaluate our work through numbers like the number of venues we're in, and how many people are playing in those venues. The most important metric would be the growth rate of total participation; essentially how many more people have played a game this week versus last week. If that number continues to increase at a steady rate, we'll know we are on the right track.
