MTH Design Thin­king Chall­enge Batch No. 3

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

In 2022 the MTH Design Thin­king Chall­enge is going into the third round. Start­ups from the cos­mos of the Media­Tech Hub Acce­le­ra­tor and the Media­Tech Hub Pots­dam, as well as from the Digi­tal Hub Initia­ti­ve, will again have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn how they can address various chal­lenges with Design Thin­king.

The next MTH Design Thin­king Chall­enge is set for Febru­ary 15th and 16th 2022. The plan is to hold the two-day work­shop on-site at the Media­Tech Hub Accelerator’s office space, in the MIZ Babels­berg buil­ding. Par­ti­ci­pan­ts have to be vac­ci­na­ted or reco­ver­ed and must show a valid Coro­na test.

If your start-up is part of the de:hub initia­ti­ve and you are inte­res­ted in par­ti­ci­pa­ting in the MTH Design Thin­king Chall­enge, you are wel­co­me to app­ly. Just send us an email to the fol­lo­wing address:

The MTH Design Thin­king Chal­lenges take place in coope­ra­ti­on with the HPI Aca­de­my and are fun­ded by the Fede­ral Minis­try for Eco­no­mic Affairs and Cli­ma­te Action (BMWI) as a high­light pro­ject of the de:hub initia­ti­ve.
