Here’s a couple upcoming events you’ll want to check out:
Vancouver Innovation Camp is an opportunity to learn and practice creativity and entrepreneurial skills through a series of activities inspired by the book What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 (by Tina Seelig). During this 16 hour workshop, students will participate in a variety of exercises. Each activity focuses on practicing key principles of being an entrepreneur – identifying opportunities, learning from failure, defining success, and innovating. By the end of the workshop students will possess the tools to look at problems from a fresh perspective and identify opportunities, and the confidence to produce and implement creative solutions.
It’s being held at the Kontent Creative Office: Suite 203, 55 Water St. Vancouver BC. The first workshop is October 13th so don’t wait – sign-up as quick as you can.
