Last summer, Sequence was pleased to host the inaugural group of students participating in Stanford’s Silicon Valley Innovation Academy in a series of design thinking sessions at our San Francisco studio.
This year, Silicon Valley Innovation Academy has evolved into a selective program and competition that allows participants to experience what it’s like to be entrepreneurs. They will get the opportunity to solve problems creatively, develop and pitch ideas, and collaborate with others on teams.
The program is currently in its third week, and I’m excited to share that I will be participating in a panel discussion focused on design thinking. The panel will discuss how organizations use design thinking and creativity to solve real world problems and address emerging opportunities.
At Sequence, design thinking has been the consistent foundation for launching high impact brands, products, and services. This has been true whether we’re creating new, connected experiences for health care; helping brick and mortar retailers and restaurants transform themselves with innovative digital tools; or even creating a novel category of mobile games.
I’m looking forward to sharing what I’ve learned at Sequence, start-ups, spin-offs, and multi-national firms.
