How do you create a cool product in the digital age? How do you find what users want, do a great marketing and sell it for the right price? Students learn in a fun and pragmatic way how entrepreneurs innovate, converting their ideas into consumer products, apps or services others love. Design. Invent. Pitch.

By redesigning the same product, teams of students will build their own solutions, together with a simple sales, marketing and financial plan. Teams compete at the end of the week to earn a special prize.

Students will get inspiration from companies like the GoPro camera, Linden Lab Virtual Reality project Tesla’s electric cars and others. They will discover consumer needs, design, develop prototypes and research competitors. They will also experience team building, collaboration, conflict resolution, decision making, business ethics and presentation skills.
