Discovery Foundation and Chang Institute for Entrepreneurship present: IdeaStorm: Creating Innovation Sept 21st, 2019
Discovery Foundation is pleased to partner with TEP alumni agent KAST to deliver The Discovery Foundation Tech Time Program
The traditional understanding of creativity is that it is unstructured and doesn’t follow rules or patterns. We’re often taught we need to think “outside the box” to be truly original and innovative. Or we should start with a problem and then “brainstorm” ideas without restraint until we find a solution.
The problem is you’re forced to wait for inspiration, for the muse to descend, or some unusual spark of brilliance before you can create something. Leaving many to give up and simply copy an idea and sell at a lower price.
Shumka Centre for Creative Entrepreneurship is pleased to present the Fall 2019 program for the Discovery Foundation Art, Design, Business speaker series.
KAST has partnered with the Nelson Tech Club, to support barrier-free public hackerspace for people of all ages to learn, share and play using technology. Discovery Foundation’s Tech Time will be all-ages, inclusive programming offering introductory education in technology.
