    (Additional time for self-study is required)
  • You will work either in a fully digital team or live team in Potsdam (travelling costs can not be covered)

PEELx is a business modeling 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. 

This workshop is a great opportunity to look for potential co-founders in a very early stage of your startup or spin off.

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. 

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 into action immediately. The knowledge gained throughout the workshop can also be applied to your own projects, lectures or startup.
