About this event
Up for a challenge? Fancy meeting new people? Then join us for an afternoon of brainstorming, problem-solving fun. No prep or previous experience required. Take the first step in generating a new business idea.
This workshop, facilitated by award winning Foundervine, will take you through the idea generation techniques that enable creative thinking and innovation. This will be a hands-on workshop going through mind mapping, the 5 “Why’s” and collaborative innovation. You will practice generating new ideas using different techniques. During this session, you will also be introduced to how to pitch with confidence. The objective of this short taster session is to teach you how to tell a compelling story.
After the session there will be an opportunity to discuss the ideas generated in this session with a member of the Enterprise Lab, including next steps to turn your idea into reality! Details on how to book this will be shared at the workshop.
