In 2021, the MTH Design Thinking Challenges have been held twice – the first time completely digitally via Zoom and miro-Board, but the second time in person.
The teams who have participated at the MTH Design Thinking Challenge have learned how to use the Design Thinking method to address individual challenges and advance their startups.
That’s what the teams say about the MTH Design Thinking Challenge:
“The MTH Design Thinking Challenge was a great experience for our team. With the professional guidance through the Challenge, we were able to gain far-reaching insights that led to us immediately adapting part of our processes.” – clous
“We participated in a Design Thinking workshop for a second time and the result was positive again. In the first workshop we developed the prototype of a comic (for advertising purposes) and then continued to develop it for another three months. In the second workshop we designed the prototype of our new website, which we are now realizing. Both workshops were experiences that moved us forward. In terms of both the product and as a team. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of it.” – nxtBase technologies
“The event was well organized and hosted. Our coach did a great job. It was a very valuable experience for us as we had our target group so close to us and generated valuable feedback. Much of it will be incorporated into the further development of our app. The process was clear and understandable, and it inspired us to have some valuable discussions.” – Klangchat
