Join us in HEL
FOLLOW THE SPRINT CHALLENGE
A Nordplus funded intensive programme (IP) taking place online in Helsinki 2021 (26.04 -30.04). Follow our teams working on a real life client project, solving the client case by testing solutions in just five days.
The five day Sprint challenge
The Design Sprint is a five-day process for solving problems and testing new ideas. SPRINTINHEL follows the SPRINT process invented in Google by Jake Knapp and explained in his best selling book Sprint.
On Monday, teams make a map of the problem.
On Tuesday, each individual sketches solutions.
On Wednesday, teams decide which sketches are strongest.
On Thursday, teams build a realistic prototype.
On Friday, teams test that prototype with five target customers.
Finally teams present their results.
Generating New Ideas. Solving Big Problems
A client will be chosen for the Sprint and students will solve a problem the client is currently grappling with.
Kick off: Due to the Coronavirus restrictions SPRINTINHEL will be a virtual sprint carried out online. Dates: 26.04 - 30.04.2021
Our students work hard over the week, developing ideas, coming up with solutions to difficult problems and presenting their recommendations to the client.
Students & Client Companies
We have organised other Nordplus IPs around entrepreneurship and innovation and here is what our student & clients had to say about the experience.
“We gained real knowledge in understanding how business actually works, how to use the Lean Canvas and to come up with innovative solutions.”
“We gained lot of innovative ideas and business models for our goal of encouraging increased sustainability in the North-East of Iceland with better utilization of resources and increased knowledge of how the community, the environment and economy can function together.”
“Academically the course has raised my interest in many aspects of business innovation and market segmentation principles. A total eye opener”
“I was impressed with the students review of our business and recommendations on how Lean Startup methodologies could aid our business to grow and enter international markets.”
