What people are saying

        In just a few weekends, this bootcamp sharpened my innovation skills. The course leaders were very knowledgeable, and I also got a lot from collaborating with my fellow students. I suggested that my colleagues, and anyone leading innovation in their organization should take this course!

        The Innovation Bootcamp was an amazing experience to learn and create with others. The curriculum covered a range of great topics and it was non-technical so I could start creating right away. I still talk about what I learned and I have the things we made in class on my phone to show others as well.

        I signed up for the Innovation Bootcamp hoping to get a better handle on emerging tech, and what it means for my life and my work. I got all that as well as my own token, an AR gift and an AI written post for my blog, which was a blast to do.  I gained more confidence navigating the tech world and using tech in my personal and professional life.
