Using Technology for Good - Together

 

Why Jump Starts?

Cloud, the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data are all dramatically altering infrastructures, enhancing engagement with citizens, transforming industries and enabling communities to more easily develop enterprise solutions to local needs.

Critical to this transformation is the collaboration between businesses, higher education, community and government, which together can accelerate the creation and deployment of innovation across all sectors of an economy using a joined-up approach.

 

Impactful Collaborations

Jump Start is an agile, learn-able, repeatable and flexible framework which every participant can use to get things done collaboratively, while creating unique and measurable outcomes that benefit all involved, whether it be a commercial enterprise, social enterprise, community enterprise or indigenous entrepreneurship endeavour.  Jump Start comprises three sessions:

  1.  Art of the Possible: We look at key opportunities and themes for a region and then cast our eyes globally to see what’s happening with these themes in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

  2.  Ideation: The Ideation session generates enterprising ideas to meet specific opportunities and core challenges that are best executed using a joined-up approach between local communities, industry, government and higher education.

  3. 90 Days: We then run a process of idea selection and viability testing to select one or two specific collaborative innovation projects that can be executed within a 90-day period to begin the journey.

 Jump Start helps to emerge well-designed, well-governed, accountable, and impactful collaborations that can create collaborative and sustainable social and economic initiatives with potential to scale across regions to maximise access to the benefits and opportunities technologies provide.
