Another Ideation Programme wrapped up

09.06.21

Over the past four weeks, we have facilitated eight sessions for the students of the Ideation Programme. In a nutshell, they got an introduction to entrepreneurship and used the design thinking process to identify a (social) problem and find a suitable solution.

Even though the Ideation Programme is short, we can confirm that the students who participated put in 100% of their efforts to identify a social problem and came up with a product/service in a short time. We hope they will use the methodologies they learned in the programme and apply them to their future business ideas, as many of them showed a keen interest in developing their business ideas.
