"The workshop was well organized, and the tools & canvases for innovating and strategizing on products developed by them were extremely useful in these testing times under Covid. The workshop itself was well divided, giving ample time to coordinate and work with team members. The discussions with my team also gave us a lot of insights on how to improve our final presentation."
