Tomorrow is the launch of Vancouver’s “Innovation Camp” which will be a week of workshops and idea-sparking discussions.
At Vancouver Innovation Camp, youâ€™ll discover how answers to these questions are related to learning entrepreneurship and innovation skills… …Participants learn by doing â€“ practicing techniques to generate new ideas and expanding upon those ideas in order to accomplish a shared goal such as creating a product or completing a project/challenge. There are no lectures, just engaging activities that facilitate learning and growth.
Inspired by reading the book What I Wish I Knew When I was 20, the organizers thought this unconference could expand upon its ideas and introduce more people to this way of thinking. Themes throughout the week will include: Identifying opportunities, learning from failure, creativity (developing then expanding upon ideas), seeing problems from fresh perspectives, and innovation (implementing and iterating ideas).
Registration is currently open online and admission also includes lunch and a drink each day. Innovation Camp takes place Oct 13th, 15th, 17th, and 19th, at the Kontent Creative offices in Gastown. Follow @Innovation_Camp on Twitter for updates or more information.
