Break-Out Week: a space for creative thinking

At BenevolentAI we believe that unconventional thinking combined with purposeful technology can lead to innovation that can truly change the world.

Like all fast-growth tech companies, we face the challenge of balancing the need to build and scale quality products while also finding time to be innovative.   We rose to the challenge the Benevolent way, by creating Break-Out Week: a whole week dedicated to getting to know each other better, being creative and testing new ideas. We had approximately 200 team members taking part in 40 projects across our London, Cambridge and Brooklyn NY offices.  

The diversity of the teams and imaginativeness of the projects pushed the level of creativity off the chart. Here is a behind the scenes look at how the week played out:
