Official Acumen / LEAN FOR SOCIAL CHANGE PRE-COURSE MEETUP
London+Acumen is hosting an event for all those interested in undertaking the LEAN FOR SOCIAL CHANGE course produced by Acumen. The event will be held at HUB ISLINGTON on the 12th of June and aims to help facilitate interested parties to form lab groups for the course.
LEAN FOR SOCIAL CHANGE is a free, online course from +Acumen that draws on the latest thinking in Silicon Valley on how to build companies that maximize customer value while minimizing wasted effort and makes it relevant for social innovators. http://plusacumen.org/courses/lean-for-social-impact/
Attendees to this event will get an invaluable insight into the successful application of the LEAN MINDSET for social innovation, and it will be a great occasion to meet new likeminded friends.
After this event the HUB ISLINGTON venue will be available for course participants to study at free every Thursday from 6-9pm, at London+Acumen's SCHOOL FOR SOCIAL INNOVATION. We encourage group to base their workshops here if they can, i order to gain the most out of the opportunities for collaboration and networking offered by the +Acumen online course community in London
We look forward to seeing you there!
