WEtech- Ignition Session #1: Empathize and Define
October 5, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
In this one hour working session, Libro and WEtech Alliance leverage Design Thinking to understand the challenges and BIG ideas you have! There are multiple sessions available for registration!
WEtech Alliance, in partnership with Libro Credit Union, and Digital Main Street, are launching Ignition, a unique partnership aimed at connecting businesses with innovators in order to solve the big challenges in future proofing our region by leveraging Design Thinking.
The program is a six-month design sprint that seeks to understand the challenges local businesses are facing, and tangibly bring them together with entrepreneurs who are capable of quickly prototyping and commercializing the solutions the businesses need to future proof their operations.
With funding from the Federal Economic Development Agency of Southwestern Ontario (FedDev) and Libro Credit Union, the WEtech Alliance Ignition program has been expanded through Digital Main Street Future Proof program to target main street innovation.
“At WEtech we are lucky enough to not only get to work with the fastest growing startups in our region, but also with our large industry partners, helping them to develop their first internal innovation frameworks, solving some of their largest challenges,” says Adam Frye, Director of Business Innovation at WEtech Alliance.
