What are the biggest problems facing the world? How do you focus on issues which impact customers? This pre-accelerator workshop will help identify customers and the problems you should be solving for them.

In the first workshop in the series, we will be exploring global challenges such as COVID-19, health and mental wellbeing, inequality and climate change. You will consider how to define a problem and understanding the process of thinking of the customer needs and outlining a clear problem statement.
