How it started
The Mobile Academy is a collaboration between Mobile Monday London and UCL, set up to provide practical learning programmes for those that are working on new business ideas.
At the heart of the course is the idea of bringing together different communities that can help create and resource new businesses, shape and inform go-to-market strategies and help enable development and delivery of great new products and services.
We hold our programme at Idea London, a brand new innovation centre, set up in the heart of London’s Tech City by UCL, DC Thomson and Cisco.
We have four main principles that guide us in everything that we do:
- CRAFTSMANSHIP - Our tutors are experts in their area and through being practitioners, have real life experiences to share
- USER-CENTRICITY - We beg you to talk to your users at the earliest opportunity & keep them involved to help you develop your product & proposition
- DIVERSITY - We bring people from diverse backgrounds and with diverse skills because we like the additional dimension of learning from each other & the collaborations that follow
- CO-CURATION - Participants, Tutors & friends all get involved in the creation, support and delivery of the programme — as such we continually evolve and surprise
Here is a word from participants of the very first programme:
