[MaGIC Webinar] Design Thinking is a Mindset

In light of the ongoing Movement Control Order (MCO) and MaGIC’s recent survey having conclusive data that only 2.9% of start-ups are confident in surviving through MCO -  MaGIC will be bringing you its Webinar series, a platform for online live sessions with industry experts and entrepreneurs to shed light on the various ways to strategise and thrive in a time of crisis, such as the one brought about by the COVID-19.

Each topic in the series will dive into the different areas of business and offer tools and insights for business sustainability, followed by a Q&A session. We at MaGIC will strive to provide a platform of support for our entrepreneurs as best we can.

The Session

Creativity and innovation is not limited to a select few; with the right training, anyone can develop a creative and innovative mindset.

Design Thinking is an innovation tool used to better understand users, challenge assumptions and redefine problems to find alternative solutions and strategies. The iterative process of Design Thinking helps us to apply human-centred techniques to solving problems.

Join us and Carol Wong in this session to further understand the Design Thinking process and the mindset of the innovator.
