Design Thinking Workshop

Thursday, September 8, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Skandalaris Center, Mallinckrodt 128, 6465 Forsyth Blvd #128, St. Louis, MO 63105

Eight out of ten entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months. That accounts for a whopping 80%. The number one reason why startups fail, which accounts for 42% of failures, is because there is no market need for the product or service developed. It may be a million dollar idea. It may look impressive. But unfortunately, it is not solving a core problem for which people would pay. This is where Design Thinking kicks in.

Join Tracie Wolfmeyer and the Skandalaris Center for a workshop on Design Thinking. Preview real life examples and learn about:

  • How to capture insights
  • How to convert insights into action
  • How to test hypotheses
  • How to experiment and test viability quickly
