Rapid Innovation Lab

Rapid Innovation Summits, led in partnership with Smallify, are 2-day crash courses in Rapid Innovation, design thinking, LEAN startup principles and business model design for social impact.

The hands-on boot camp is for social innovators — entrepreneurs, business, nonprofit and community leaders — to learn how to apply innovation best practices and design thinking to make better decisions and more effectively solve challenges related to new or current programs, projects or other critical social challenges.

Led in partnership with: 

Innovate Houston

100% of participants surveyed from Innovate Houston, Atlanta, and New Orleans would recommend the rapid innovation summit to their peers.
