Fidelity Labs Tour 1
Using a combination of good old-fashioned ingenuity, and innovation methodologies such as Design Thinking and Lean Startup, the Fidelity incubators take a customer-centric approach to problem solving, with a focus on rapid experimentation, and permission to fail. They are debating, experimenting, researching, teaching and collaborating on new ideas every day and a select number of attendees will have the opportunity to see this first hand.
You’ll receive a behind-the-scenes look at how Fidelity creates new startup products and businesses inside the existing company. The tour will include a look at:
- The Student Loan Incubator is focused on addressing challenges posed by the $1.4 trillion student loan debt and the impact it has on younger people’s ability to save for retirement.
- The “Egg” is a space used to showcase experimental prototypes for a variety of future-leaning ideas, some which have already been built into actual products, and some which may never become products. Live demos of voice-controlled devices, robots, and virtual reality are among the many items you can experience here.
