In a single generation, the internet has transformed nearly every aspect of the modern world, from our ability to communicate, share knowledge across borders, to our ability to access resources. 

Though innovation in the digital sphere is often seen as an option for huge corporations, we have seen first-hand the difference that digital solutions can create for smaller enterprises. More thoughtful user experiences and automation can help drive productivity by freeing up your time, allowing you to do more with less and use your limited resources to bring real value to your users. We wish to make this available to social enterprises, so that we can all play our part in using technology for good instead of for exploitation.

— Comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of lean startups.

— Idea generation around how digital apps can support your social enterprise.

— Exploration of user-interface designs.

— Creation of a paper prototype.

— An appreciation of design thinking principles and how to apply them to the creation of an app.

— An understanding of lean startups, MVPs, and agile development.

— An understanding of how to work with developers to get an app built.

— A concrete idea (or ideas) for a real app.

— Those who feel excluded from tech because of the jargon surrounding it.

— Underrepresented groups in tech.

— Female founders.
