With collaboration, crowdsourcing and design showing their problem-solving potential for business, Groundbreaker aims to explore and build new tools of collaborative innovation and provide a framework to tackle innovation problems through multi-faceted activities. But most importantly, it is designed to help with the most difficult step – getting started. The new format of design-led innovation is curated by u.lab in conjunction with the Australian Design Centre in Surry Hills.

Through a series of public and private workshops spread over eight weeks in July and August 2012, Groundbreaker invited local organisations to learn how to benefit from design thinking applications and encourages local creative thinkers, innovation champions, open-sourcers, systems magicians, and curiosity-buffs to imagine and prototype new methods of collaborative innovation.
