Hong Kong Service Jam is a design-driven hackathon, it's part of a global movement of jams that are taking place over one weekend in cities across the globe. Join with all kinds of people from experienced designers to interested newbies to design and prototype a service in three days.
Get excited about an idea. Put all your effort behind it. Run up against the wall. Work with new people. Build up your thinking, then make it work in a weekend.
Designers who like big sticky problems become service designers. At the service jam you’ll practice taking a broad approach and having a bigger impact.
Code is great, but it’s just one part of the puzzle. Practice using Technology to make human-friendly value propositions at the jam.
Making something from nothing is scary. Entrepreneurs can get practice swimming through ambiguity and making decisions your customers will love at this weekend.
Design is a powerful way to solve sticky problems and give your business strategic direction. You’ll skip the slides and theory, and learn by doing at the jam.
