1 Day Invotech Innovation Lab


Co-Creating and Innovating for Hong Kong's Future

  • How do we make Hong Kong a Smarter City?
  • What could the future of housing and quality living look like in Hong Kong?
  • How can we as citizens of Hong Kong work together collaboratively and constructively?
  • How might we get there by 2020?
  • How might we apply technologies that can improve our living standards?

In the spirit of Invotech as a do-tank, we invite you to take action and join us on the 10th of September for a 1 day Innovation Lab to explore and reimagine the future of Hong Kong and solve challenges collaboratively with key stakeholders from our government, corporations, entrepreneurs, design community, students, etc.

The Innovation Lab is a first of its kind experiment that will use the Design Thinking process, an innovation method pioneered by Stanford Design School to explore and re-design new services and businesses that meet the needs of our everyday citizens. The Lab is a collaborative process that encourages co-creation and deep communication between the various representations of our community to brainstorm innovative solutions through a united vision.

Language: English and Cantonese

This 1 Day Innovation Lab will be situated at the heart of Hong Kong at Metta in Lan Kwai Fong, an inspirational venue over-seeing the skylines of Hong Kong.

This lab is the beginning of a longer experiment and will kick-off 5 teams exploring 5 themes and challenges of Hong Kong. The end result will be concepts and ideas to be taken further by the various theme champions:
