Inspiring Innovative, Interdisciplinary Collaboration through Play
Using mixed-reality experiences as a catalyst for disruptive innovation, the Mavericks Congress is perfect for organizational retreats focused on enhancing team dynamics. Participants must work together to solve problems. Along the way, they learn the expertise of everyone on their team.
The Mavericks Congress disrupts organizational hierarchies, sparking collaboration between participants. Participants must rely on each other’s expertise and work together to solve problems. Along the way, they gain insight into fellow participants’ skillsets and problem-solving strategies.
The Mavericks Congress is also great for organizations looking for transformational networking and collaboration across sectors and fields. We bring together leaders and innovators working in adjacent fields, and Mavericks levels the collaborative playing field so that innovation solutions and new partnerships can emerge.
“Yes, a room full of mostly strangers had a blast while solving puzzles, even self-proclaimed introverts. During this exercise, we talked about how this idea would usually bring stress and anxiety, but the attention to detail kept every participant engaged and curious the entire time.”
