Welcoming Our Robotic Overlords
Limited Capacity seats available

Robots have rapidly evolved from technological sideshows to significant additions to our daily lives. From robotic industrial arms to cute social robots, it is no secret that the field of robotics is progressing by leaps and bounds, and that this is just the beginning. This September, as part of Vancouver Startup Week, MistyWest is proud to bring together roboticists for a Build and Brag session. Come and learn how some of the leading roboticists are building the future of automation, and what ethical and philosophical concepts they have to grapple with as part of their product development process.

Learn 10x Faster with Prototype Thinking
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Learn how to build a product or service that fuels its own rapid awareness and adoption

The most important capability for your startup is the ability to learn:  Does your startup measure how effectively you learn? Prototype Thinking is an approach originally developed at Google X for categorically increasing the speed and volume of learning by 10x or more.  Using hundreds of rapid, low-cost prototype iterations and simulation-based experiments, Prototype Thinking teams ensure that they not only build a product right, but that they are building the right product. In this practical, hands-on workshop, participants will learn the method by applying it to a real idea or project, leaving with tangible immediate insights and a new toolkit going forward.
