WHAT WE DID
A 3-stage, month-long program that included an intense ideation experience combined with an adapted “hackathon” concept where business aspects were evaluated in collaboration with clients and technological feasibility was evaluated in a fablab.
A team of 20 engineers, Sales and Marketing staff generated over 300 ideas, investigated top 6 of them from business and technology perspectives, and identified top projects to fast-track to production.
