Miami jams with the world once again by going on a design thinking adventure with the Global Service Jam.
The Global Service Jam is a 48-hour event where people come together in cities around the globe to create and prototype new services and products that make a difference.
Jams are about meeting cool people in your community, practicing design thinking and creative problem-solving methods, and most importantly, having fun!
You will learn design-based tools and skills you can apply to your business or any project. These tools are used by Apple, IBM, and other top-notch companies to drive innovation, delight customers, and reduce risk and project costs. In addition to being a fun event, it is excellent professional development.
You don’t need to be ‘creative’ or have experience with design to Jam. In fact we encourage people without these things to join us. You’ll be supported throughout the weekend by your hosts and mentors.
Get your ticket today! Space is limited.
How does the Jam work?
The event will kick off world-wide at 9:00 am local time on February 27th, when we will prep you for the Jam and reveal the secret design theme. Participants have until 3:00 PM local time on February 28th to publish their project prototypes on the Global Service Jam (GSJ) website and share them with the world.
Please bring your laptop, tablet, cables, etc. You will need these to take photos or videos of your projects and upload them to the GSJ websithe throughout the weekend.
