Berlin Bootcamp – a virtual version

March 25, 2020

The current development of COVID-19 caused us to rethink our plans to host our SmartUp bootcamp in Berlin. A big thanks to our seven motivated smartups, our speakers and ten partners around the BSR for making the virtual version of the Berlin bootcamp such a good experience!

During our online sessions on 24-25.3, the smart consumption finalists Eco-BuddyPlanet HeroesSuckõrsKamupakNyamCup,  Habits and INNER ELMT have:

  •  Been given some food for thought on making new market entries as we heard from Perille, a smart mobility company who took part in last year’s program!
  •  Done some “sensemaking” with the SmarUp partners about the current situation and identified goals and strategies for targeting a new market
  •  Gained new perspectives on user understanding thanks to a great presentation and workshop by senior service designer Laura Lerkkanen, who works at Hellon – the most awarded customer experience design agency in the world!

As of this point, the acceleration phase has begun. Smartups will be have 1-on-1 meetings with their target market partners and work to achieve the goals they have identified during the bootcamp.

We look forward to following the smartups on their journey! Find out more about what they do here.
