The RIDG Instant Innovator Challenge was a fast-paced, fun and interactive event for individuals and teams who wanted to become problem-solving machines and superhero versions of themselves. Teams immediately received the tools and information required to create a prototype and start refining it. No more stopping after the ideation process. Teams were able to learn every single phase of the innovation process by jumping into an immersive experience designed to unlock and challenge their design chops (and nerves).

Today’s leaders are charged with inspiring people and generating ideas at speeds and quantities that seem to exceed their capacities (time, physical abilities, mental strength). The consequences can be damaging — stress, lack of focus, and feeling like we will never live up to the expectations.
