All day workshop by UQ Ventures for start-up company in Uniquely Australian Foods

9 December 2021 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

ARC Centre for Uniquely Australian Foods: Design Jam

This workshop is for ARC centre students and post docs to help us to get a clear set of ideas and a plan for potential start-up businesses.

We will be inviting our Indigenous Enterprise partners to join us in person and virtually, as well as an expert panel at the beginning of the day.

About the Design Jam: Design thinking is a framework for creative problem-solving. Design thinking has a human-centred core. It encourages organizations to focus on the people they are creating for, which leads to better products, services, and internal processes. It allows those who are not trained as designers to use creative tools to
address a vast range of challenges. The overall goal of the design thinking session is to help you design better products, services, processes, strategies, spaces, and experiences. Design thinking helps you and your team develop practical and innovative solutions for your problems.
