Tackling wicked problems doesn't have to mean staying somber and serious. In fact, creativity and inspiration often transpires from moments of fun and play. In this class, we will use Down to Innovate, a card game for creative social impact, to practice lateral thinking and cross-pollinating. This class is meant for anyone in search for new ideas or to further develop them, both entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, students, designers and engineers.


The group session are every Wednesday at 2pm. For one-o-one session, we can find a time that works for both after registration.
