blended course
when 16 August 2022 - 19 August 2022
language English
duration 1 week

PEELx is a business modeling bootcamp, using the Design Thinking mindset to accelerate innovative projects.
Last year we welcomed over 40 participants from 4 continents, from bachelor student to professor in natural sciences, life sciences, social sciences, arts & design, law studies, IT and economics.
You will work together in interdisciplinary teams with excellent coaches from the HPI School of Design Thinking, to get the best out of the 4-day interactive workshop.
You will learn how strategic problem-solving works and what the basics of a business model are. You will get tools at hand, to apply to your group work at university, research or corporate projects.
This year, we offer you also a bunch of actives alongside the workshop: from sports challenges to meditation and an after workshop party – we got your work-life-balance covered!
You can apply either as regular participant, to join a team and learn from a real life project, or as idea provider, with your own early-stage business idea (pre-seed).
Participants from all countries are welcome. This event takes place in on-site teams or home office teams (fully digital via Zoom).

And what is the best? We pay all the costs for your Summer School.
