An immersive journey made up of 5 sprints

Designed into 5 sprints, this contest was inspired by the popular Google Design Sprint. The program was adapted around work schedules with general activities on Saturdays and specialized workshops weekday evenings. These dozens of hours of training are optional, but strongly recommended! This journey is at the heart of the Cooperathon experience where the most innovative projects and inspiring teams are built. The Cooperathon is a unique event for people and organizations who believe cooperation, innovation, and entrepreneurship can make a positive difference in the world.
