“Those who can imagine anything can create the impossible.” -- Alan Turing
Bringing fresh ideas to life and ultimately to market is not a well charted course. In July, our guest Tina Seelig will share her model, The Invention Cycle, that taps into our innate capabilities of imagination and creativity to help us innovate better.
We’ll learn and gain understanding of:
- Crisp definitions for imagination, creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship
- Clear next steps for progressing from the seed of an idea through implementation
See the Speaker Series wiki for additional details on the session. Reminder these events are open to the public, so invite a colleague or a friend to the office or the stream! The event will take place on the Wed, July 20, 10am – 11am PST in Mountain View + AirMozilla.

As Professor of the Practice in the department of Management Science and Engineering, faculty director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, and a founding member of the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (d.school) at Stanford School of Engineering, she works with others who embrace the idea that entrepreneurs do much more than imaginable with much less than seems possible.
After earning her Ph.D. from Stanford University Medical School in Neuroscience, Tina has worked as a management consultant, multimedia producer, and was the founder of a multimedia company. She’s also written 17 books and educational games, including The Epicurean Laboratory and Incredible Edible Science, published by Scientific American; and a series of card games, called Games for Your Brain, published by Chronicle Books. Her newest books, published by HarperCollins are What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 (2009), inGenius: A Crash Course on Creativity (2012), and Insight Out (2015).
She’s been honored to receive significant recognition of her work, including the Gordon Prize from the National Academy of Engineering, the National Olympus Innovation Award, the SVForum Visionary Award, and several university teaching awards.
