Youthstart Entrepreneurial Challenges

Youthstart Entrepreneurial Challenges is an ambitious project on EU-level with the goal to establish entrepreneurship education in formal education throughout Europe.

In total more than 20 challenge modules have been developed; each covering a different aspect of entrepreneurship.

In this project we were responsible to conceptualize and author 2 challenges and to create the design and user experience (UX) for the website.

We created a design thinking challenge for 10+ year old school kids and designed an accompanying poster. Teacher training was essential, so was prototyping the design thinking challenge throughout many iterations and testing it.

For the website we collaborated with the clients' web developer for whom we delivered site mockups and site style guides. The website's goal is to make the challenges easy to find and to use.

Status: Design thinking challenge applied in schools, Changemaker challenge in development, website will be online January 2016

IFTE - Initative for teaching Entrepreneurship

IFTE - Initative For Teaching Entrepreneurship is a Vienna based association with their goal strikingly put into their name.

For IFTE we held various workshops, mostly on design thinking, with very different participants: from 10 year old school kids to European Commission representatives. Also we created the webdesign for their new website and laid the base for it to be built.

Beyond contractual work it's a fruitful cooperation where we gladly support with insights from the design and start-up world.
