We’re the Idea Lab, part of the Zahn Innovation Platform at San Diego State University. We help people to solve their problems using Design Thinking and other creative problem solving tools. We help the people in our SDSU community – people, teams and organizations – on campus and afar. We also work with the business community to help them solve problems, develop products and services, and improve process.
Idea Lab is funded by a generous grant from the Moxie Foundation, founded by Irwin Zahn, pictured above with Director Kevin Popovic. With this gift San Diego State University has developed the Zahn Innovation Platform (ZIP), a campus-wide hub for collaboration across disciplines that includes the ZIP Launchpad to help launch of new ventures. Overall, ZIP facilitates problem-solving and inspire students, faculty and staff to pursue their creative ideas.
