Design a Better Business Experience

A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

You will experience a 2 day workshop and event night. The locations where the experience is held are places where you can work, relax and socialise. You will experience uncertainty, will have fun, will learn and will get to meet other people.

GET OUT OF THE BUILDING!

You need to step up as a rebel and be comfortable with being uncomfortable. We help you to get out of the building and be prepared. What do potential customers do? What do they think of your new concept? What questions do you ask? Part of the workshops is to observe and question (potential) customers for your concept. You can practice your design skills like and start asking the right questions..

WHY SHOULD YOU COME?

You are a rebel and want to transform your business or start a new business. You are a business leader, an aspiring entrepreneur, a corporate innovator, a growth investor, a social impact change agent or enterprising student, this deep dive will yield you many insights and experience with new tools to change uncertainty into opportunity tomorrow. You want to look for like minded people and connect with the community.
