A Chattanooga company that uses creative problem-solving approaches is teaming up to bring a unique class to the Scenic City.

Bridge Innovate is joining with Canada’s ExperiencePoint and the UK’s Treehouse Innovation to bring the Design Thinking Master Class to the United States this year.

Design thinking is a creative problem-solving approach that challenges assumptions and aims to understand users.

“We are proud to work with our global partners from Canada and the UK to bring this unique train-the-trainer program to our city,” Bridge Innovate CEO Jenny Whitener said in a prepared statement. “Taking place shortly before Startup Week, this master class will help people bring innovation excellence and growth to their respective organizations.”

The Design Thinking Master Class is a three-day program that will equip participants with the knowledge, skills, tools and practice they need to:

  • Guide organizations and clients through top-of-the-line design thinking simulations

  • Utilize Sprintbase, the new design thinking platform for virtual teams, and become a certified guide to lead teams through design journeys anywhere worldwide
