Why Us?

Learn innovation. Proven innovation methods.

The genesis of Plinnovate started with a seed planted in the mind of a parent.  This seed was a workplace workshop, facilitated by Drew Boyd, on the topic of innovation for corporations, using a method called Systematic Inventive Thinking (SIT).  The parent saw the potential of this method for his own kids and as a good tool in their life kit.  Starting with his older son, at the time in high school, he gave his son a copy of the book, Thinking Inside the Box, to read and followed it up with a few chats.   To the parent’s delight, not only was the topic of interest, the older son saw value in sharing this with his friends and peers.  He actually wanted to teach this course.  And guess what? There are no courses taught on innovation in schools!  Yet, we hear all the time about how important innovation is to solving today’s problems and preventing those of tomorrow.  And so Plinnovate was born on the premise that students can learn to be innovative just like any other subject – the sooner the better, the more practice the better.

Our mission is to prepare the students of today, to become the innovators of tomorrow.

What We Do

Provide online innovation courses, innovation workshops, and consulting for students, classroom, student organizations, and student startups. We hope that through these resources, students are able to innovate and make a change in their world.

Our Approach

Design courses for students and young adults designed by students and young adults with mentoring by adults.  We have taken the traditional Systematic Inventive Thinking course and re-created for students and young adults, providing supplementary materials that were selected to enhance the overall learning process.
