Ideation: the capacity for or the act of forming or entertaining ideas.

Session will be lead by Matt Paulin, Principal Consultant at PugetWorks Inc.

Entrepreneurs! Have you scratched down ideas on the back of a napkin, or across your office whiteboard waiting for the right formation of an idea? It takes guts to get your ideas down on paper and begin the process of vetting them with other like-minded entrepreneurs. Let NWEN help by bringing in one of the masters of Ideation, Matt Paulin. Matt will lead you through individual and group ideation exercises that will help spark those extra nugget ideas or filter out the ones that won't stand the test of time. This is a skill to master, come learn the basics!


Matt is the founder of the SeattleThinkTank. This local group of entrepreneurs, inventors and technologist meet to practice brainstorming techniques. He has made it a point to study what people do to come up with ideas and how ideation in groups can be done better. Previously he blogged with Seattle2.0 to talk about this subject. When he isn’t thinking about Ideation he is building software startups with his firm PugetWorks Inc.
