Design, Innovate, Grow
Business school students are requesting more access to innovation and entrepreneurship classes each year. One such class is the University of South Carolina's Innovation and Design, taught by Professor Joel Wooten, which uses innovation tournaments in the classroom to help students learn how to deal with uncertainty in solving problems. Those same principles will guide DIG Camp, with instruction from Professor Wooten as he leads students through our own innovation challenges.
