Co-Build Salon

Join Explorium for a ‘mini Co-Build Salon’ — their traveling workshop format — to work on a challenge, decided by participants at the kickoff of the workshop.

For Fung Group, we generally look to create pilots or other project investigations from these catalyst workshops, involving a broader ecosystem as well as internal champions from the group. The power of the Salon is in its flexible format. Join if you’d like to bring a concise, quick, and vetted format to your corporate that bring new projects and engage the community around.
