In October, 2019 for the first time ever, 53 grade 11 “Teenpreneur” inventors from the Cambridge House Community College in Valencia, Spain, had the exciting opportunity of completing the BizSmart Design Sprint, featuring Apple TV+. The challenge: “Now that Apple is introducing their streaming app, create a better way of watching movies and shows on an iPhone to heighten the user experience.”
Despite the new material and learning approach, the young aspiring inventors eagerly embraced the entrepreneurial spirit and the BizSmart ZOG values of Zest, Optimism and Grit and jumped right into the challenge. In the short span of 4 hours, innovation teams, experienced working in small groups of three, going through the process of analyzing the problem, brainstorming solutions, and designed products that best suited their customers. From hologram projections to phones flying at your eye-level to surround-sound headbands, teen entrepreneurs imagined unique and innovative solutions to the challenge.
Teams completed by pitching their innovations to the BizSmart Global staff. The winning team was extended a special invitation to the 2020 summer sessions in the Silicon Valley at the top rated Santa Clara University.
Special thank you to Alicia Hilton of the Cambridge House Community College for hosting us and also Marta Quintana and Louis Patino of Valway Company for helping us coordinate and organize this workshop.
We look forward to bringing more Silicon Valley thinking to the beautiful city of Valencia and this entrepreneurial enthusiasm to the rest of Spain. BizSmart Global operates entrepreneur workshops in Silicon Valley, CA, USA near BizSmart Global’s headquarters during the summer months and around the world throughout the year with unique entrepreneurial experiences for ages 11-15 and 16-19.
