How does the Business Innovation Lab work?
This facilitated lab invites you to solve a real-world problem using Design Thinking, with a focus on SMEs, communities, and not-for-profit organisations.
You'll be placed into a team of up to five students, matched with an industry partner, and receive a client brief detailing a business challenge.
You will be guided through a Design Thinking process that will assist you in developing a solution to your client’s challenge. Teams are supported by a BIL facilitator to ensure you are on track with your project.
The Lab will culminate with final pitches to all industry partners.
