Hannah Phang and Rinat Sherzer ’16 Bring Social Design to Cornell University

Recently launched innovation lab Of Course Global started by alums Hannah Phang and Rinat Sherzer brings social impact and innovation into businesses and educational institutes. Within businesses, they leverage their existing products, services, and technologies, to create new offerings that benefit people, the community, the business, and the planet. With institutes such as universities, they offer design sprints and workshops on design thinking, social impact, and innovation.

This past weekend Of Course led a Creative Sprint with 120 participating students at Cornell University. Created by three student led organizations at Cornell, the mergence of 30 different majors in dialogue, set an unprecedented unity for an otherwise insular undergraduate and graduate community. Over the 8 hour event, Hannah and Rinat guided the participants through the process from interviewing, developing insights, ideating, prototyping, testing, to presenting an idea for an environmentally sustainable product.

We are excited to see where Of Course Global will go next, and we wish them the best of luck!
