Successful innovation teams are multidisciplinary, follow a method and work in creative spaces

Events by STUDIO.WHY


The Innovation Games is a one-week program (24/7) for young creative leaders to gain profound insights into the Dutch design.thinking innovation method & mindset and to work together with big organizations as project partners on real life challenges.

Through exploration with sector experts, corporate leaders and major companies, 40 up to 100 young professionals, students and starters will identify needs, frictions and opportunities for real life challenges. With those insights they will develop innovative solutions that will be pitched for the Dragons Den jury during the final presentations. This way the Innovation Games is a social event that equips talents with a new mindset to drive innovation and change.

Due to my experience with STUDIO.WHY I found out that my future is with innovation.
