How should firms innovate new products and services? What is the role of the potential user in this process?

These fundamental questions are very relevant for UK firms in the fast moving high-technology and new media space – especially those in Tech City.

Speakers

Stefan Haefliger, CENTIVE, Cass Business School
Iris Lapinski, CEO, CDI Apps for Good

The Workshop

The CENTIVE workshops on design and innovation engage entrepreneurs from Tech City in the debate in order to spark discussions and mutual exchange and learning between practitioners and academics.

The last workshop in this series, welcomes Iris Lapinski who shares her experience of education, technology and community action.

As before, the workshop opens with an introduction to the topic by Stefan Haefliger who’ll also facilitate the discussions, followed by the showcase and an open bar for continued networking and informal conversations.

Iris Lapinski

Iris runs CDI Apps for Good, a fast growing technology education movement where young people learn to create apps that solve problems they care about and change their world.

From a modest start in 2 centres and 50 students in 2010, by September 2013 Apps for Good will have grown to 400 schools across the UK with more than 20,000 students between 11-18 years old and is exploring entering the US.

52% of our students this year were girls.

Apps for Good

The company is supported by hundreds of leading-edge technology entrepreneurs, UX designers and developers as expert volunteers and tech industry partners like Facebook, Barclaycard, Dell, Thomson Reuters, BlackBerry, SAP, Tata as well as Nominet Trust and Nesta.

In 2012 the Observer and Nesta named Iris as one of Britain’s 50 New Radicals for her work with Apps for Good.
