During the week, participants will become immersed in the practices, behaviors and culture that have made Silicon Valley the heart of innovation for more than 70 years.
During Boot Camp, participants gain hands-on experience applying innovation methods and developing an innovation pitch. The related activities help participants hone their skills for advancing and leading successful innovation projects in their teams and organizations.
