60 Minutes. 2 Groups. 1 Goal: Propose Creative and Practical Solutions for Everyday Problems – NanoLabs at SRH START-UP LAB Berlin.
InnovationLabs.Berlin moderated NanoLabs with master students from SRH Hochschule Berlin. NanoLabs are ideation sessions where small groups work together to solve real problems. In 60 minutes of intense interaction the groups addressed ever popular user-problems like “Never enough time. How to improve my time management?” and specific business challenges like “How to scale e-commerce websites to grow in many countries?”
NanoLabs take students out of the traditional lecture course environment into a hands-on lab set-up, where they are encouraged to learn from each other, iterate ideas, and take risks. Feedback was unanimously positive. Lola, a participating SRH student remarked: “I really liked the way we did the whole workshop in terms of style and approach” and Areeba found “knowledge is everywhere”.
In cooperation with our new partner Luvago, we have developed Digital Validation Labs. It is based on intensive interaction with customers including SAP, Red Bull and others. Together, we determine the digital maturity of your business or organisation, addressing the three most critical challenges of today:
- How digital is my business/ organisation?
- How can I utilize my existing potential for digital innovations?
- How can I get more digital, quickly?
I’m looking forward to working together in our Digital Validation Lab. You too?
Thanks to many engaged innovators, mentors and founders our two participating startups MVP Space and Philosophers in Business, received great support to tackle some of their current questions. Caroline, founder of Philosophers in Business likes mostly that the occasion of NanoLab exists at all. “It is a great opportunity to present an idea or a special issue of my project and to get feedback from people from different backgrounds. Diverse feedback creates the best ground to move on. It was all very well organized. I will definitely take part again.”
