No Bla, Just Do - Design your first Kickbox prototype!

Swisscom, Switzerland’s leading telco & ICT company, adapted Adobe Kickbox and further developed it into an award winning “Intrapreneurship-as-a-service” product, that can be implemented as a white label version in organisations in a fast and lean way. It is a mix of a physical innovation box, a digital intrapreneuership platform and a trusted peer community.

In this workshop you will learn more about Swisscom Kickbox and the vision of building an “open innovation ecosystem” that will enable cross-industry collaboration. Further, you will design your first Kickbox prototype that will be tailored to your company and help you to launch your own bottom-up intrapreneurship program. Let’s turn your employees into entrepreneurs: no bla, just do! More infos: www.getkickbox.com
