The Greenhouse hosted another fun OpenStorm last Wednesday for the Women’s Safety challenge posted on OpenIdeo.
We had 2 groups of 6 people each going through the process of Brainstorming and Prototyping! Out came the lego and the markers as both teams went about trying to prototype their ideas. For the prototyping we used the User Experience map which Ideo uses and it was very helpful in understanding what to prototype as well as giving better shape to their ideas.
One of the ideas developed during the OpenStorm has been posted on the platform- http://www.openideo.com/challenge/womens-safety/ideas/fire-drill
A warm thanks from the Greenhouse to the attendees and we hope you keep coming back for more!
Many entrepreneurs face similar challenges: getting the first round of funding, launching while in school, or avoiding burnout in the lean years before your business becomes profitable. While we often look for ways to solve these challenges, we rarely talk about how this experience is different for women.
Join NYU Entrepreneurship Special Interest Housing, the NYU Entrepreneur’s Network and Bridge at Wagner for a lively discussion with leading women entrepreneurs. From just out of school to established startups and investors, these speakers will draw on their diverse range of experiences to offer participants practical advice about how to get started regardless of your background and the resources available to you.
Light refreshments and beverages will be served.
