Science & Psychology of Better Startups #6 - CREATIVITY

  • Nov 19, 2013 · 7:00 PM

 PART 1

Networking Activity (15)

A fast paced human interaction that will acquaint you with your fellow startup specialist

PART 2

Main topic (45 minutes)

Where Does Creativity Come From?

Creativity: it seems to occupy a black hole of knowledge. It is very difficult to define, and even harder to command. In this presentation you will learn about the science and psychology of creativity and what you can do to take command of this elusive concept.

At this meetup you will learn:

• how to see creativity as an environment rather than an artifact

• what steps you can take to increase your own creativity

• how to increase the creativity of a team or company

PART 3

Interactive discussion - your next step (60 minutes)

Participants get to share their current project and pain. They will then receive feedback from the group. To facilitate everyone we break up into groups of 5-7.

About your host -

Atma is a social scientist and entrepreneur who begun studying the implications and obstacles facing startups in 1997. He is on a mission to bring entrepreneurs into the world of Management 3.0

Why there is no cost:

We are going to waive the previous cover charge.  This will be an experiment to see how members manage their RSVPs. To encourage people to respond accurately there is a new rule: anyone with 3 Rsvp no-shows will be removed from the member list (that seems fair :)

Community Mission

The goal of this meetup is to build a community of startup specialists who can help themselves, and others, become more effective in their entrepreneurial pursuits

Future topics will cover:
