June 2018. 12 dreamers, 4 challenges set by large companies and a journey of innovation
This year the Silicon Valley programme was started in Los Angeles (Kick-Off) where the dreamers got to know each other for the first time. Having formed their teams, during the first week they worked on the inspiration and conception stages of the Lombard Method, travelling to the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Mammoth Lake and Yosemite. The dreamers worked on projects in completely different spaces, from inside a van, and co-working spaces, even exploring the Grand Canyon and in a haystack off Route 66. Each location was part of the process to generate disruptive and innovative ideas.
Lastly, in Silicon Valley, the focus was on the prototyping and communication stages, visiting companies such as Netflix, Twitter, Apple or Ideo. To complete the programme, and bring together all of the work carried out over a month, they presented their projects in Google’s offices, ending their presentations with a networking event attended by experts, including the founders of Whatsapp or Stanford professionals, Coursera and Google.
