ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

Capability – learn by doing

With a focus on the three most common methodologies from the startup and innovation world – Design Thinking, Lean Development and Agile Management – you’ll learn to identify an urgent customer problem that needs solving, before diving into analysing existing solutions, prototyping and testing potential solutions with customers.

Connections – Learn from those who do

Gain insights from the experienced business people who visit the programme to share their expertise and stories with you.

Every speaker throughout the programme was an inspiration. So helpful to have them come in and show us from an external perspective on how to apply the VU skills to careers, life, others around us.
