The Design Jam allows you to join a group of like-minded, passionate young people who want to solve problems creatively and take the first step toward learning practical job-ready skills and developing your own project or business idea.

You will have the option to continue on to the Incubator to develop your project using sustainable business models and deepen your skills.
