How often are the words moshpit and innovation used in the same sentence? WBC EmPWR’s Innovation Moshpit™ Workshop Series will be like concertgoers colliding in a moshpit. Yet, the moshpit is the workshop series, convening small business owners to mash-up unrelated ideas and concepts to reimagine their businesses.
WBC EmPWR Innovation Mosh Pit Workshop series begins August 12, 2020 and continues through October 7, 2020. The 10-week virtual program will be co-led by Gregg Fraley, Founder, GFi, and Sarah Lance, WBC EmPWR Program Manager. Workshop participants will move through the Innovation Moshpit’s comprehensive innovation process, which includes three phases. The first phase is exploration or research. The second phase is ideation, otherwise known as brainstorming. The last phase is project planning. Participants could create an entirely new business model, or, a necessary adjustment to the new normal. Participants will develop a solid plan to implement something new, fresh, and exciting for their businesses or organizations.
Thanks to a grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Women’s Business Ownership (OWBO), the cost to participate is just $30 for the Stormz virtual meeting platform. This program is specifically for women; however, it is also open to everyone with businesses and organizations in 83 Indiana communities served by the WBC EmPWR Program.
