createand design sprint workshop


BACKGROUND

Launching during Global Entrepreneurship Week, come join us for our first "Intro to Design Sprints Workshop" for creative problem-solvers, entrepreneurs, and startups. You'll get an overview of the Google Ventures innovation framework, and a taste of our 2-day design sprint workshop format.

For this workshop, you'll dive deep into one of the 5-steps of a design sprint framework, and you'll be learning by doing!

Design sprints are a five-step framework that answers critical business questions, through radical collaboration, rapid prototyping, and human-centered strategies. A design sprint ignites innovation, empathy, and teamwork to turn ideas into action faster.

Inspired by Google Ventures, we've refined this model to include equity-centered design principles, storytelling, improv, and integrated theories of Jazz and Martial Arts.

Learn about our 2-Day design sprint workshop by going here, and sign up for the waitlist for the 2-Day workshop by going here.
