Maryland Innovation Center

Daydreaming about starting your own business or nonprofit? Currently running your own company and thinking about making bold moves?

Don’t just speculate. Design it.

This four-part seminar, held Wednesday evenings at the Maryland Innovation Center from April 19-May10, will give you the tools you need to cut through ambiguity and move forward with confidence. Vance MacEwen, co-founder of Greatest Possible Good, delivers interactive workshops taking you through the design thinking process.

You’re not just taking another class; thanks to a generous Howard County grant, you get open access to your instructors’ calendars while taking courses at the MIC. Apply what you learn in real-time.

  • Learn what design thinking is and how you can use it to build what your customers actually want, not just what you think they want
  • Practice customer interviews, collaborative research synthesis, rapid prototyping, and user testing in a fun, low-stakes way before carrying it out for your own venture
  • Check in with your instructor with free one-on-ones as you apply your new tools

When you are done with the program, you will have a powerful new toolkit setting you apart from your competition and giving you a greater measure of certainty.

Please note it is highly encouraged to attend all four sessions, as they go through the design thinking process in a sequence.
