Design Sprint 1

The project work starts with real problems. But not just yours. Your team needs to identify, validate and explain that there are valuable user problems out there and that you might have the perfect solution for it.

Design Sprint 2

After our mid term presentation we start into the second week of TMS. You will learn basic aspects of business design to develop and present a suitable business concept for your product idea. You will also have access to fully equipped workshops to continue with prototyping and finalize your MVP design.

Demo Day

The Demo Day is a celebration of everything that your team represents: a “wow” moment for everybody. You’ll pitch in front a huge audience,  experts, VCs and industry partners and show insights of your TMS journey. It’s all about your grit, drive and determination to create something innovative and hopefully a contribution to the next wave of tech.
