Event description

Description

With startup failure rates of up to 90%, it is clear that current approaches to growing new ventures are not delivering sufficient returns. While passion, rigor and talent are essential traits of entrepreneurs, the most important success factor is the identification of a real problem and the creativity and adaptability to navigate it towards success. This workshop introduces a critical component often missing from a founder’s toolkit - Human-Centered design. In recent years there has been a growing number of global design-led success stories such as AirBnB, Intercom, Pinterest and Lynda.com, and research demonstrates that a design mindset shares many similarities with that of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world.

In this fast-paced workshop developed by Actionable Innovation, budding entrepreneurs will get to reassess an existing idea through a design lens. During the workshop, participants will learn tools and techniques to identify compelling customer needs, re-evaluate and redefine their challenge, creatively explore new opportunities and create experiments that validate and de-risk potential offerings.
