Event description

Join us at the Western Sydney Startup Hub, powered by Spacecubed on July 28th from 12:30pm for a free talk on 'Stop Inventing Cool Sh*t your Customers Don't Want!', presented by Nathan Baird, MD & Founder of Methodry. 

Innovation is one of the most important endeavours of modern times, yet 95% of innovations fail. Why is that? Because too many organisations still waste their time inventing solutions for non- existent customer needs! In other words, teams fall into the trap of ‘let’s make some really cool sh*t,’ but this jumping-to-the-solution mentality, so prevalent in the corporate and start-up world, means teams are too often skipping the ‘front end’ of the innovation process.

In this interactive and experiential talk, Nathan argues that taking a Design Thinking and Experimentation approach to innovation and business is the key to a faster, smoother, and more successful innovation journey.
