Potsdam Entrepreneurship Experience Lab (PEELx)

The next PEELx will take place from the 16th - 19th of August 2022

  • 4,5 Days Design Thinking sprint & Lean Canvas
    (Additional time for self-study is required)

PEELx is a business modelling bootcamp, using the Design Thinking mindset.
Use your research to enter the market & contribute to society or be team mate to bring the idea to the next level. You will work together in small teams  and an excellent Design Thinking coach, to get the best out of our four-day workshop. 

You can apply as an idea provider with your early-stage business idea from academia. This is your chance to have fresh minds working on your project, enter the industry or contribute to society. You can also apply as a regular participant, to share your expertise. This workshop is also great to look for potential co-founders in a very early stage of your startup or spin off.

You will get insights into the lean startup methodology and learn how problem-based thinking works. Understand your future customers/ users and develop customer-oriented solutions, that will bring more value to your clients. No matter if you work on an IT, life science or social startup idea, you will get an introduction to prototyping and you will be able to put your new skills immediately into action. The gained knowledge throughout the workshop can be applied to your own projects, lectures or startup.
