What we're about
We are the world's largest Design Sprint for Good community.
Join The Ladder global goals accelerator to co-create initiatives, products, services with LOCAL non-profit , social enterprises and community using the DESIGN SPRINT method to make local impact on global issues like climate, poverty, inequalities. We work on REAL projects with REAL organisations. The stakes are high, the pace is fast, the vibe is fun.
Design sprint can only be mastered by doing - just like you can't master a sport by watching videos. You gotta play it!
You CAN make an impact while learning a cool skill to add to your portfolio and enhance your career.

What you will Learn
There is only one real way to learn the skill of making real impact - by doing - so you will solve a real problem with a local non-profit ,organization, business start-up or community project, using skills you already have (and they need) in a structure we provide through 'Design Sprint' over 6 weeks.
You will learn how to define, ideate, prototype and test any idea using, the fastest and cheapest way possible. Validate your idea before spending significant money, time and resources using the most rigorous, proven - and innovative approach available today.
Not only will you be learning, you'll be contributing directly to a real local cause as well as helping The Ladder reach it's goal - getting nations to reach the global sustainable development goals by 2030 by scaling impact.
The outcome is that you will be a Design Sprint Practitioner- ready to try your own idea with a sprint as well as getting inside a real non-profit or charity and contributing locally.
