Project Description

Growth Mindset

CHALLENGE YOUR BRIGHTEST TO COME UP WITH A £100M IDEA

Outline

Through spotting an opportunity provided by emerging technologies, and plenty of hard work,  we have built a £20m business at MakerClub and are starting to think much bigger.

With our innovation competitions, we will bring the technical knowledge of experts from each of the emerging technologies, and combine them with the domain expertise of your employees to search for the next big opportunity for your company.

  • Identify customer needs

  • Brainstorm Ideas

  • Prototype solutions

  • Test the market

Get Hands On

We know that people learn best through making and that we are much more likely to retain knowledge through experiences than powerpoint.

That’s why all of our workshops use our award-winning invention platform and hands-on challenges.

During the Design Thinking Workshop, we set the scene that participants have crash landed their rocket on Mars. In their teams, they will need to learn how to program a 3D printed robotic arm and then reprogram it to solve a challenge against the clock, and save their crew!

Deliverables

This workshop combines the technical expertise from MakerClub and our network with domain-specific expertise to deliver strong ideas. We will run an initial day of workshops with your chosen team designed to use the lean approach to think and act like a startup.

They will then work on their ideas on the side of their desks, supported by our experts, before coming back together to pitch their ideas to senior partners. As an extra incentive, there will be prizes for the winning team and the opportunity to continue working on the idea.

Results

We believe that one of the big four should have come up with Xero and that one of the big energy companies might well have invented nest smart meters.  These workshops will instil an ethos of thinking big and thinking like a startup. If we don’t quite manage a £100m idea, we’ll settle for a £10m one.
