Innovation Sprint

Join this interactive one-day workshop and develop solutions for a real challenge of your company. We organize the Innovation Sprint and acquire an interdisciplinary student team, which together with the company's expert and under the guidance of a creativity coach work on the challenge.

The student teams present their solutions at the end of the workshop in the form of a short presentation. The team with the best solution idea wins. The workshop is in English, free of charge.

Let us work together with our international students on solutions for a specific challenge of your company!

Watch our video (German language) on YouTube and learn more about the Innovation Sprint.
