About Nadereh

Hi, I am Nadia McGregor, the founder of schoolofdesignthinking.solutions. We provide hands-on workshops teaching Design Thinking as a problem solving method to professionals.

As the product development co-founder, I am focused on working to build something big and hope you will believe in my vision as well.

About lightening lab
Lightning Lab is a 12-week mentor-intensive, business acceleration programme based on the best of breed accelerator model developed by Tecstars in the US. With the goal of preparing start up companies for investors, Lightning Lab provides an efficient and structured model that helps start ups move with greater speed and build momentum quickly.
The next programme in Wellington focuses on women-led companies (meaning, at least one co-founder is a woman). The purpose of the programme is to discover, accelerate and invest in exceptional women and the companies they run. The accelerator will provide the right environment for female founders to thrive through the challenge of starting a company while being supported by a diverse line-up of world-class role models, coaches and mentors.

Commitment will be key since we will be working for at least 4 months full-time to build MVP, find our hyper-responsive customers, stablish couple of champions as well as buy in from at least one investor.
