Yesterday VentureWell hosted 300 University Innovation Fellows (UIF) and about 20 College Professors at Google’s headquarters in Mountainview.  It was an incredible day.

We were hosted in their training facility.  The tables were whiteboards and writing or standing on them was encouraged.  I learned a number of design thinking exercises, that I will use in my classes when I get back.

Lego was everywhere and the lobby furniture was made out of cardboard.

Alex Nassieff joined the other UIF Fellows in brainstorming and empathy exercises.
