Innovative Experience Lab

Dear Colleagues

In July this year I was part of a group of 13  South Africans that attended a “Business Design – Innovative Business Models” training hosted by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) Gmbh in Feldafing, Germany. As part of the training program, we were exposed to various different aspects required for successful business design and implementation. One of the aspects that I certainly found most valuable was the sections on Innovation Management and Design Thinking. As an engineer, I realised just how rigid we can become in our problem solving techniques and stifle our creative thinking, thus never coming up with innovative solutions that actually solve the true problem at hand.

Having seen the value of this training first hand, I realised that South Africans can certainly benefit from having exposure to such training, that will allow us to solve problems differently. As such Digsilent Buyisa has teamed up with Wildchild Innovations and Institute for Integral Entrepreneurship to bring the “Innovation Experience Lab” to South Africa. Based on interest, the 2 day workshops will be held either towards the end of 2016 or early 2017. There are plans to host a workshop in both Pretoria and Cape Town.

For more information please see the attached brochure and a video of the workshop at


If you have any queries or are interested in attending such a workshop, please email us on or call +27 87 351 6159.
