Startup Bootcamps Cambodia: Design Thinking & Pitch Karaoke

As part of the workshops hosted by Startup Weekend 2016, TechStars, a global startup ecosystem will be presenting on design thinking & pitching mechanics at one of the bootcamps to be held this coming Thursday. Speakers Mr Oko Davaasuren and Ms Lalitha Wemel are both experienced leaders in the TechStars South East Asia & Oceania Team.

To be held at Emerald Hub, which is located in the PPIU building, the bootcamp will be centred around two topics, Pitch Karaoke & an Introduction to Design Thinking. Here’s a breakdown of the topics:

1. Pitch Karaoke

A critical element to any successful startup, pitching is a skill that all startups need to conquer the hearts of their potential investors, partners and even teammates who will work with them in the process.

Deciding if you should attend this session? If you are unable to describe your startup in one full sentence, then you probably do not understand it enough. With this session, learn how to take a step in the right direction and create a kick-ass pitch.

2. Introduction to Design Thinking

Design thinking is a human centered, prototype driven process for innovation. It’s a creative and collaborative process that can be used to innovate around any issue, and most importantly, it’s great fun.

Using the theme of an hands-on workshop, learn what design thinking is and its process in 5 simple steps:

  • Emphatise
  • Ideate
  • Prototype
  • Test
  • Iterate

So jump right in and use design thinking to design, prototype and test something on the spot. Not only will this grant you useful design thinking skills for future applications, it will also give your startup a competitive advantage both in how you operate internally as well as how you present yourself externally.
