This year, we had again the opportunity to support the team of BizSmart Global on their high-tech entrepreneurship camps at Kantonsschule Hottingen. Two facilitators from our network supported the one-week program. The schedule for this year’s program was quite similar to the one of last year’s edition, but there was a new highlight. On Wednesday afternoon, the teams got the opportunity to video talk with a professional industrial designer from the US for an hour about their products and business ideas. The designers took the raw ideas of the students and started to sketch. This resulted in a rendering of the product, which improved the final pitches of the teams to a new level.
Due to the pandemic, students and staff members had to wear masks at all times. By doing so we could still conduct the camp in person, but sometimes coaching was more challenging because of the lack of facial expressions.
We are looking forward to another collaboration with BizSmart and we are happy that we had the opportunity to give the high school students from Hottingen an inspiring experience and a glance at product innovation!
