We will provide design thinking training and opportunities to interact with industrial experts. Our Urban Technology Workshop 2024 will take place from Mon 3 June to Fri 14 June. You will get to pitch your ideas along with like-minded students to the public at our competition and showcase scheduled on Sat 15 June. Not only will you learn more about design thinking, you will also have the opportunity to make lifelong friends and become part of an international community.
“I think I really enjoy learning about the process of venture thinking and design thinking. And I think sometimes I learn that you really got to make decisions quickly, like you have everyone contributing and you should just move on and make a decision.”

“Going through the storming phase of the innovation process has been a real challenge that has made me grow a lot in terms of ideating and coming up with new ways to make systems more efficient and attractive and bring together ideas to a lot of people to create and to make more successful and innovative ideas. It is a really cool process.”

“To be able to be here in Hong Kong and experience the city has been incredibly valuable. My favourite memories have been doing the site visits with my team, even things like getting meals and being able to have these conversations talking about their experiences with some of their families, chatting about my experience with MIT have been really amazing and also deep in my learning significantly.”

“The program has been amazing. Working and learning from Svafa and Gilad has been really productive and helped me think about how I might want to build my own business, my own firm. They really sort of retour a lot of the things that I have learnt over the past decades of my education within the design of being able to use it.”
