Participants Get to “Be the Innovator!” at Insight for an Evening

Chicago Ideas Week 2015Working 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.

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.
