How It Works

The Proof Concept of Studio is a six-week long program.

  • Meetings will take place once a week for five hours.
  • Each meeting is broken into small sprints where participants will learn about methodologies, engage in hands-on exercises, contribute to group discussions, and present deliverables when applicable.
  • Participants are expected to apply their learnings in between meetings.
  • The program will conclude with a demo-day where residents will showcase their idea(s).

By the end of this program typically you will have a prototype or be weeks away.
