Innovation Brew: How might we reinvent coffee?

27 Jul 2019
09:00 - 13:30
118 Greenway, Greenside, Johannesburg

Use gdcTHiNK to reinvent coffee and create a better all-round caffeinated experience.

Date: Saturday 27 July

Times:   09:00 – 13:30

Business thrives on coffee and coffee is big business. But the whole experience of buying, brewing, drinking and finishing up after your coffee can leave a bitter taste in your mouth. Identify the pain points in your quest for the perfect cup of joe and use the design thinking process to reinvent coffee and create a better all-round caffeinated (or decaf) experience.

The purpose of the workshop is to introduce participants to user-centred design thinking as a method for solving problems creatively and for driving innovation and entrepreneurship. It is a practical workshop based on a learning-by-doing approach. The workshop follows the format of a high-energy design sprint, where participants work in teams to complete a design challenge in four hours. In doing so, the participants are exposed to different aspects of design thinking and are guided through the phases of the design process in a practical, fun and hands-on workshop.
