i-DEATION - A glimpse into CIPTA

“Have you ever racked your brain for new ideas, only to come up empty—while others seem to shake them almost effortlessly out of their sleeves?”

Being creative is often associated with being messy. Messy desk. But what if you can come out with a new good idea through an ORGANISED thought process? i-DEATION provides you with a ‘cheat sheet’ to ace the game of creativity and innovation by thinking from a different perspective.

i-DEATION serves as the first phase of a start-up journey, where the process of defining problem and generating creative solutions take place. There will be speaker sessions as well as a workshop on that day. Through speaker sessions, participants would be inspired to think creatively and “disruptively” and get exposed to the entrepreneurial ecosystem. On the other hand, through the workshop, you would master strategies and tools which will help you to spark innovation and ideas, besides gaining the thought process to validate an idea and determine its feasibility.

The workshop comprises of:

  • Talk by Matt Chandran, the CEO of iGene Global.
  • Talk by Huy Nguyen Trieu, the Ex-MD of Citigroup and RBS.
  • Design Thinking Workshop where the participants get to put what they have learnt from the talk to practical use,
  • Talk by 2017 CIPTA participants regarding their experience in realising their idea.

Join i-DEATION to find your route to your ‘aha moment‘!

P.S. Airbnb utilises this technique too!
