Social Innovation
This page provides a quick go-to for those starting the Enactus Innovation stage. Have a look to remind yourself of the stages in innovation design.
Preparation
To make the most of your project development, take time at the beginning of the projects to set up communication devices (e.g. Google Drive, Whatsapp etc) to ensure all of your team are in the loop.
Explore
Researching your area of interest is an essential part of ensuring your project is appropriately designed to resolve the issues beneficiaries (those whom you are wanting to help) are facing.

Do NOT skip this part, when pitching to investors being able to show evidence and collaboration with those you are helping will increase your chances of funding and advisory support.
Ideate
This is the fun part. Bring your team together and use all the knowledge you have gathered to start thinking of ideas. Games can be used to get the creative juices flowing, but in the end, your final few ideas need to ensure they are hitting the main research insights you gathered beforehand.
Prototype & Test
Here you should be creating prototypes of your product or project that you hope to pitch later on. Use software applications (e.g. Google Sketch) and UoB resources to help you along (e.g. Hackspace).
Social projects can be hard to demonstrate, however creating 'Storyboards' can give a good indication of how beneficiaries could use your project.
Output & Repeat
This stage involves bringing all your work together as a team. Essentially, teams should be able to write a clear and concise proposal to pitch to advisors, investors and the Enactus competition boards to prove how successful your project would be at helping beneficaires.
