What you will Learn

There is only one real way to learn the skill of making real impact - by doing - so you will solve a real problem with a local non-profit ,organization, business start-up or community project, using skills you already have (and they need) in a structure we provide through 'Design Sprint' over 6 weeks.

WATCH: What happens in a typical session (15 secods)

You will learn how to define, ideate, prototype and test any idea using, the fastest and cheapest way possible. Validate your idea before spending significant money, time and resources using the most rigorous, proven - and innovative approach available today.

Not only will you be learning, you'll be contributing directly to a real local cause as well as helping The Ladder reach it's goal - getting nations to reach the global sustainable development goals by 2030 by scaling impact.

The outcome is that you will be a Design Sprint Practitioner- ready to try your own idea with a sprint as well as getting inside a real non-profit or charity and contributing locally.

Get in touch with us at with any questions and ideas.
