Join Construct in Supporting Innovation in Oregon Public Schools

Design-Innovation Action Collaborative Spring 2019

Unlock Your Team’s Creativity to Seize Business Opportunities & Solve Challenges.

The first ever Portland-area Design-Innovation Action Collaborative, hosted by Construct Foundation, kicks off this spring 2019. A tailored, three-part Design-Innovation Action Collaborative – a flexible, action-oriented, professional learning opportunity that will unlock participants’ creativity to seize a business opportunity or solve a nagging business challenge by:

  • Using design tools and research to refocus on customer segmentation and needs

  • Learning a prototype-driven method for innovation

  • Breaking through system constraints that prevent greater impact or increased revenue

  • Leaving with creative confidence and design methods that transcend industries, products, and services

Portland is known for its start-up culture, b-corps, high-impact nonprofits, creativity and collaboration. Now, Portland is leveraging the best of design thinking to expand business innovation and economic development, with all proceeds benefiting innovation in our local public schools.
