Oporto Thinkers Academy

We challenge and inspire individuals and organizations to expand their skills and innovative mindset.

Through the Design Thinking approach, we promote a new way of facing challenges and releasing organizations from their usual silos. Whether talking of an individual or a collective level, we seek to address you the path to innovation in a holistic and outward way. It will be operating from the outside to the inside, being agile in processes and based on an empathic relation, that you will find the true receivers for your products and services. 

Training / Workshops

We co-create short-medium term training sessions with companies and educational institutions, according to the goals from the organizers and trainees.

These activities, organized by OPTA or through our patners network, aim to promote and enable the trainees to address a new way to face their problems and present challenges. Using this Design Thinking approach, and always focusing on a particular case study, we garantee a strong practical and immersive component with a selection of tools that are easy to learn and integrate.

Mentoring / Consultancy

We provide consultancy and mentoring services according to your project or business idea.

We have several solutions so that you can get the needed additional skills to expand your business. From product design to service design, through business design and digital solutions. More than a service provider, we want to be your mentor and partner for the development of your business model to its arrival and implementation in the markets.
