The 4days Training
During the 4days Training period, you will develop your ideas. The course will provide direct contact with potential customers, in this way you can directly receive feedback from them and improve your product/service. With the support of mentors you will develop a prototype, which you can use to test your idea, to get quick and effective feedback and eventually to refine your solution.
The goal of the 4-day training is to come up with tangible solutions for human needs that are in relation to the negative effects of climate change
