Join us for the "Think Like A Startup” pre-conference workshop! This is a high-energy and fun workshop that enables you to see your organization through a new lens. Using elements of design thinking, agile and lean startup you will learn how to align team values, organizational culture, product offerings, and business models with customer needs and goals. In just three hours, you will form a team and co-create a completely new business using a human-centered design approach.
Whether you are driving innovation within your organization, interested in learning about design thinking and how to apply it, or looking for a new approach to solving nagging problems, this workshop is full of practical tools for you.

We have a limit of 35 attendees so those interested should register early!
“One of the biggest take-away's for me was the way this workshop reinforced how collaborative teams always seem to accomplish more.”
“The Design Thinkers’ Think Like a Startup activity was a great success. The thought processes they encouraged are a perfect way to spur innovation in a company of any size or age.”
“This workshop was a huge eye-opener for me! It is funny how people who do not even know each other and perhaps do not have many of the same values, can somehow come together on a few pieces of common ground and "create" a company you never would have thought of otherwise.”
