About

The Inno Cookbook: Unleash your creative side with this one-of-a-kind book of meaningful maker activities.

You need to dream big to innovate. This book helps you do just that.

We want to help you change the way you think: to create, to fail-forward, to find your passions, and then to become a change maker.

So, we complied all of this into an easy-to-use innovation cookbook. It's filled with bite-sized activities, integrated projects, resources, and recipes -all to inspire your exploration of the newest ideas, tools, methods and mindsets, of innovation.

At the core, it's a book that helps you dream, create and grow your mindsets  -and it's even more than that. It's created to be your uniquely-you book.To be made and remade as you explore, create, and learn new mindsets.  And then to use these new skills to join others to solve real-world problems. 

  •  Step 1) Assemble your book (and activity journal) with our disc-binding system. 
  •  Step 2) Learn new skills and mindsets as you explore the 5 -10 starter activities. 
  •  Step 3) Hack (uniquely modify) your cover to express your learning. 
  •  Step 4) Collaborate with others to solve a Global Design Challenge. 
  •  Repeat with new activities as they come available in the future (see stretch goals) 

In the end, each book will be a record of your innovative thoughts, ideas, and actions -all bound into a uniquely-you cookbook. 

Thank you for your support and for your time as we work together to create awesome things that matter.

-Mark Schreiber, Founder Design Case

Risks and challenges

Design Case specializes in innovation training and curriculum. To that end, we are confident in our abilities to create the needed content and deliver it on time.

However, we also realize that every project has its risks and challenges. For us, this will be in finding quality printers that can work with our disc binding system so that you all can assemble your own book (that's part of the fun for this project).

Additionally, though we have created hundreds of digitally downloadable, print-ready pages of curriculum, we are new to providing paper books. We have spent countless hours researching various printers, shippers, and box manufacturers so that we know what the cost of getting the completed rewards will be. We have priced this range, based on volume of rewards, into our reward levels and are confident that we will be able to get all of the rewards to our backers on time.

Kick Starter really makes you think about what you are providing and how much it will cost to get it into backers's hands. We have taken this process seriously and are excited to have you all help us launch this product so that more people will have the tools and mindsets needed to bring more innovation to their circles of influence.

Thanks again.

Now, let's make this awesome thing happen -together!

Mark
