Participants Get to “Be the Innovator!” at Insight for an Evening
Working side-by-side with one of the most experienced innovation teams in the world – Chicago Ideas Week Insight Lab ticket holders were invited to create an on-the-spot solution to a real world problem at Insight headquarters on October 14th. The sold-out crowd of nearly 70 had the opportunity to move throughout Insight’s 38,000 square foot facility with company researchers, strategists, industrial designers, model makers, and engineers and experience the end-to-end innovation process from initial idea to final realization.
Complete with a facility tour, the Lab gave participants an intimate look at storyboards, design iterations, model-making, and 3D printing prototyping to a market-ready product, and the opportunity to solve a real world problem through team brainstorming – and defining what a solution should do and what form it should take. Following their evening innovation experience, Insight pros raised a glass to toast all of our Ideas Week Lab-goers on the Insight roof with complementary cocktails.

Working side by side with Insight’s seasoned innovation team the evening of October 14th, participants will have the opportunity to help fuel the end to end innovation process through their ideas, direct feedback, suggestions and dialogue with assigned Insight researchers, strategists, industrial designers, model makers and engineers.

Participants will also experience model shop making techniques and 3D printed prototypes from the lowest to the highest levels of fidelity, a facility tour, and cocktail reception to celebrate their innovation experience.
Registration for the Insight lab will open to the public on September 8th. To learn more about Chicago Ideas Week 2015, or register, visit https://www.
