BCC and Mirada Madrid bring the Jamming experience to Berytech Digihive

Posted on March 26, 2014

For a second year in a row, 25 enthusiastic curious learners gathered together at Berytech Digihive, on March 7, ready to immerse themselves in a 48hour challenge, prototyping new service solutions, and exchanging insights with other jammers worldwide. This event was organized by Mirada Madrid in collaboration with the Beirut Creative Cluster.

The Beirut Service Jam is a platform for cross-pollination, as designers, business owners, journalists, developers, psychologists, students… all bring their insights to the table and co-create a service prototype, and re-discover hidden talents in a fun and inspiring atmosphere.
Responding to the theme: an image of a box template, jammers brainstormed and clustered their ideas that were then populated with personas, representing potential users affected by the topic. “We really loved the way our ideas transformed into a virtual road map for growth!” stated one of the participants.

These areas of interest were the focus point of our journey, as 4 groups emerged, each keen on developing one area to the max. Many of the jammers had never met before, and it was amazing to see how each person put their talent, expertise and insights at the disposal of their team members!

And it’s this exchange that makes the Jam so special, backed up by amazing mentors who fueled participants’ imagination and skills, helping them get inspired by different tools and processes.
