Gather Labs - Join the Innovation Process

In the Gather Labs we bring solutions to challenges set by companies and organizations. The labs are designed in various ways, ranging from open workshops to short sprint sessions.

Theme Labs

Gather aims to do a Lab per Theme to develop solutions regarding more general and major issues related to every one of the five themes. Each Lab is carried out with one of Gathers Innovation Partners.

Motivation Labs

The Motivation Lab is where ideas becomes innovations. The objective is to help entrepreneurs and idea-driven people to take their first steps towards making their idea become reality. The projects will meet experts, leaders, inspirations and each other to set new goals, scale ideas, prototype projects, seek founding, talent and breaking new grounds.

Solution Labs

A Solution Lab can have the goal of pushing the company's innovation work forward, with the participants helping to bring in new insights based on an organisation's challenges or with a few versatility feedback on an ongoing innovation projects. Together with the lab process leaders, their expert network and the Gather visitors Gather creates lab groups with the goal of finding solutions, new mindsets and ideas about the organisation's challenges.
