- Connect with Innovation Professionals, technology, local government & the non-profit sectors

- Learn to apply innovation methodologies (Design Sprint, Impact Measurement) for local problems, at your organisation, startup and life

- Co-create a real initiative, product or service with inter-disciplinary professionals

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.
