What we want from ventures:

We are looking for up to 10 early stage education ventures with an openness to trying out new design thinking methods. This is strictly not a consultancy model where they work for you, but a collaborative learning experience.

Your input:

- Attend the MBA elective class at SBS in Oxford on three occasions (30 April, 14 May, 04 June
from 13:30-16:45). These will take the form of a presentation by you about the venture, briefing sessions about the methods being used, and hands-on workshops in which ventures will work with their paired MBA team to try out the method and work out what else can be done between sessions. On the final session, all venture/MBA teams will present to one another and give structured feedback.
- Be in touch with your MBA student teams between sessions and undertake some structure activities together using the design methods. The exact way you’ll do this will be determined in class.

Places are extremely limited, so please apply as soon as possible. We're looking forward to your application!

Sincerely,
Emil, Lara, Lucy & Jan @emergelab
