Josep P., Director of Social Innovation Projects, Barcelona City, Spain
I led and prepared the winning proposal of the 2014 Bloomberg Philanthropies' Mayors Challenge, an ideas competition among 155 European cities.
With the Vincles BCN initiative, the Barcelona City Council sought to combat the isolation of at-risk seniors through trust networks and digital technology. Barcelona received the Mayors Challenge Grand Prize for Innovation and €5 million to implement its proposal. Laetitia was a consultant to this initiative, and of all the coaches I had, she was the most determining one. Her mastery of the Doblin's 10 types of innovation really made a difference!

How does it work?
Following a set of specially crafted immersive activities, you’ll be led on a journey discovering:
DAY 1. YOU: what is unique to you, uncovering your passion
DAY 2. PROBLEM, MARKET & UNIQUE VALUE PROPOSITION: What problem do you want to solve? Who are your customers? How do customers solve the problem today? How will you solve the customer’s problem? Who are your competitors? What is making my idea unique?
DAY 3. PROTOTYPING: What is your prototype? How do you validate your idea with customers/users? What is the feedback on your prototype? What are your revenue/change drivers? How will I know if you have a viable idea/business model?
DAY 4. ART OF TELLING A STORY AND NEXT STEPS: How can you tell a story in a compelling way that will draw the audience and sell your idea? What should you put in a pitch deck (and just as importantly - what should we leave out?)? What are the next steps you need to take to move forward?
