Approach

Embedded in Design Thinking, each of our designs consists of three core elements that empower our partners to foster collaboration and unlock creativity to create innovative solutions:
  • inspire: showcase purpose-oriented success stories
  • connect: access the ecosystem & curated collaboration across sectors
  • enable: master collaborative innovation to create solutions towards reaching the SDGs

User-Centered. Design thinking is centred on innovating through the eyes of the end user buy building empathy and gaining deep insights.  
Collaborative. Several great minds are always stronger when solving a challenge than just one. Design thinking benefits greatly from an interdisciplinary team.  
Well-Structured. Design thinking comes with a lot of useful tools. It draws inspiration from the creative processes, that are divided into different phases, sprints and tools.  
Experimental. Design thinking gives the participant permission to fail and to learn from their mistakes, because it encourages an iterative development process.  
De-Risking. Using an iterative approach de-risks products by testing both their relevance and long-term feasibility prior to committing substantial investment.
Optimistic. Design thinking, like many startup methodologies, is underpinned the fundamental belief that we can all create change—no matter how big a problem, how little time, or how small a budget.
