Do Your Homework: A Chat With Innovation X Founder Evo Hannan


Ever since he can remember, Evo Hannan has always had an innate need to do things in a different way. This originally led him to teach design in the UK and the Middle East, culminating in leading design and innovation in several schools.

In 2016, he started speaking at conferences to share his experience in innovation in education but found himself talking less about his day-to-day teaching and more about the greater impact innovation can have on education as a whole. This is when he started to focus on promoting new ideas and inviting educators to think big. Fast forward 5 years and his big picture thinking has now turned into his company, Innovation X, inspiring a new way of thinking to move education forward.

We had a chance to chat with Evo about the importance of preparing for the entrepreneurship journey, using each meeting as a learning opportunity, and building generational legacies.
