Information technologies have revolutionized many aspects of our lives. One of the most important is the way we work, buy, sell and do business. Recently, many customer behaviours, preferences and needs have changed. We have just entered into a new paradigm where most people have been through confinement and isolation. This has lead to many products and services going online.
Although some services may turn back to past practices, most of them may experience big changes into the digital transformation. Therefore as social entrepreneurs, how can we contribute in the creation of new products, services and businesses?
The goal of this course is to develop a real entrepreneurial project that complies with the needs of today's society by working on multidisciplinary teams. This practical course will follow the "Lean Start-up" method with additional content about social entrepreneurship and collaborative platforms.
Participants will learn how to prototype using different tools. Furthermore, the course will provide the opportunity for each team to work with an experienced mentor. We will also host two events related to social entrepreneurship, "meet the founders" and "meet the entrepreneurs", in which participants will get to know real and successful stories in the field.
