Thrilled 🙌 🏼to be part of the Silicon Valley Design Thinking Club team of facilitator

We’re guiding talented Stanford MBA business people (and in my case legal professionals) along the path of innovation with design thinking workshops.

Here some information on what this is all about:

LEAD Incubator and Startup Accelerator (LISA) founded by Stanford GSB LEAD participants for the LEAD Community is an ecosystem for Innovators and Startup founders. It is the first hybrid platform for incubating Ideas to MVP and scaling ventures globally. The Incubator component of LISA will operate in a virtual and online model allowing participation for the LEAD community across the globe. It also seeks to collaborate and leverage established innovation and entrepreneurship hubs within Stanford GSB.

The Accelerator component will employ a network model mostly leveraging Silicon Valley high-tech, innovation, and venture capital ecosystem. The team is led by current GSB LEAD cohorts and alumni with an impressive and diverse background across diverse industries, Fortune 500 corporations and startup advisory. LISA is supported by GSB LEAD Community network of startup mentors, advisors, designers, industry leaders, serial entrepreneurs and VCs.

What a great opportunity to explore the venture creation world! ✨Super team of 25 international facilitators, all eager to challenge, learn from each other, and share. We’ll be going strong👍🏼until Easter when the venture team moves on to the next phase of start-up development.
