The Innovation Lifecycle
Each IPRO course is based on one of the following phases:

Discover - Explore customer insights, define problem statements, and conceive innovative solutions. Our courses encourage diverse thinking and guide students in exploring different approaches!

Build - Design and conceptualization, prototyping, and iterative development! This includes creating user personas to aid in building a minimal viable product (MVP) and iterating through multiple versions to ensure that the solution is getting closer to meeting user needs.

Launch - How will your product enter the market? This stage is all about market entry strategy, user engagement, and scaling your product to ensure it’s making the most impact!
