A Bootcamp is where your organization and selected startups have a chance to meet each other and pinpoint the best solutions for previously defined corporate challenges. Over 2-3 days, startups design tailor-made solutions by running customer interviews with internal stakeholders and employees.
Our bootcamp service is part of our Startup Discovery program where we source external Innovation Champions for a given corporate challenge. Bootcamp always starts with an international scouting period, followed by a selection process specially shaped by our experience. Bootcamp itself is a great tool to get to know the latest innovative startups on the market and a great pre-service for our solution integration services.
How do we do it?
Bootcamp always starts with an international marketing communication campaign where we find the best startups by involving partner organizations and our startup-alumni network.
After the scouting process, we select the best teams and invite them to the 2-3-day bootcamp event which aims to facilitate matchmaking between our partner and the selected startups. The following modules are built into the event:
- Inspirational briefings
- Customer interviews with employees for startups to better understand the partner’s problem
- Employees and startups co-working on solutions
- Pitching to the partner’s management
After the bootcamp, we propose an integration program where Design Terminal facilitates the process to create long-lasting innovation.
