During four days, representatives of different structural divisions of Tbilisi State University or simply interested persons had the opportunity to work directly with Eileen on the development of their own ideas and to receive her recommendations.
The main topics of Eileen’s four-day workshop were idea generation, design thinking, user discovery and study, lean canvas, pivoting, market research and strategy, Pitch and Pitch deck creation methodologies.
