Ideation Workshop with Miro

26 January 2022

One of the leading startup's communities in LATAM, Latitud, invited me and Peter Boersma (Design Operations at Miro) to present a session around Ideation and idea generation in early stage startups. The audience was comprised by 150 top-quality founders from the region of early-stage startups.

"We love using your tool and as you know a lot of our entrepreneurs in the program are in ideation/discovery stages, so we wanted to maximize our partnership and invite MIRO to lead some of our ideation workshops."
