A USER CENTERED INNOVATION FRAMEWORK FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SOLVING COMPLEX CHALLENGES IN BRAND NEW WAYS 

 

The aim of Social Innovation Booster is to democratize the access to innovation tools for impact driven organizations and individuals. 

 

Innovation tools and processes are widely used by larger tech companies that we refer to as innovative, but are rarely seen  in the impact sector. Impact organizations, however, often seek to disrupt a status quo or create new markets, in order to achieve the positive impact they are striving for. 

 

When developing products and services that face a lot of uncertainty, it is essential to have structured processes that embrace the ambiguous and provide a simple way forward. These processes are what Social Innovation Booster bring to its members.

 

Social Innovation offers Booster Programs and masterclasses that will help you design your own user centered innovation process, and kickass  social innovations. By joining the community, you will be on a constant learning journey together with other people who are on the same journey as yourself!

ABOUT ME

I’m is a business designer and entrepreneur, passionate about solving our world's complex challenges through user centered innovation and sustainable business solutions.

Previously to Social Innovation Booster, I was leading and growing two service design startups in Sweden and worked for 10 years with service design consulting. My main focus was on designing services in the Swedish welfare system, as well as designing services and innovation processes for larger private corporations, business incubators and social entrepreneurs in emerging markets.  

 

I am excited to help you design your own user centered innovation process as well as design your kickass solutions to our world's complex challenges!

 
 
 

THE COMMUNITY

Turning an idea into a sustainable business can be challenging and overwhelming.. As a member of the community, you can expect to gather around a monthly topic that support the growth of your business and yourself. Once a month there is an expert talk related to the monthly topic, and you are invited to an online learning session to share your experiences and learn from others. On a weekly basis, you can expect articles, interviews, questions or challenges related to the monthly theme. You are always welcome to share your experience and to ask questions that you can't just google.  

By joining the community, you will be on a constant learning journey together with other people who are on the same journey as yourself!

 

THE BOOSTER PROGRAM

Let's take your idea off the ground and shape it into a kickass service!

8 weeks | Remote | Next program starts in September 2020

In the Booster Program, you will learn a user centered innovation process based on a design thinking approach.

In a small group of peers, with lots of time for individualized support, you will develop your product or service based on insights about the users needs.  You will have access to real-life examples and expertise, downloadable templates and a workbook specifically designed for the Booster Program. At the end of the program, you will plan for your prototype and you will have the tools to keep iterating toward the right solution. Participating in the program will give your idea a real boost!

 

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

The Booster Program helped me get deeper user insights on my business model. As a result of the program, we changed the business model to reach a larger group of users which will enable us to scale out impact. I recommend this program to all social entrepreneurs!

What I appreciate most is that you can start from nothing, you don't need to prove anything before applying and no idea is too small! I don't think my idea would ever had become a reality if it weren't for the booster. The downloadable workbook made a complex process look really simple!

Being part of the Booster Program has been extremely beneficial to our team. During the two months of our close interaction with Susanna, we took our idea off the ground, shaped and visualized it and as a result, we created a roadmap for it to be realized. In addition, the program enabled us to connect with other social entrepreneurs to share ideas.

Participating in the booster program made us reconsider our original idea to better meet a market need. The program was hands-on with real life examples and experiences, and the deadlines helped us to accelerate the process forward.

Service design tools are easy to understand but takes a lifetime to master. To have one of Sweden’s best service designer to support you through the entire process has been amazing. The value in the Booster Program lies in the outcomes. You will either have a service with a product market fit or you will have enough insights to make the right decisions.
