What's that you say? You want to learn tangible, repeatable techniques for developing a new product and/or feature ideas while sipping on a bubbly beverage? Have we got the workshop for you!

Solving problems and coming up with new ideas is hard –  whether it's for new features for an existing product, or even for an entirely new product concept. Even if you've already got some great ideas, it can be difficult to figure out which ones will satisfy all the business goals and stakeholders.


However, if you have a solid framework for creating, curating and realising ideas, you can cut through all the difficulty and frustration and start putting real products in peoples' hands. AJ&Smart, a digital product design studio based in Berlin, uses the Design Sprint process every single week to help the best companies in the world build amazing products faster than ever before!

Join AJ&Smart and Chic Geek for an intense, hands-on workshop where we'll give you an introduction to the Design Sprint process and teach you tangible techniques to use within your company or team to create effective solutions for a problem, incredibly quickly.

So...What IS a Design Sprint?

The sprint is a five-day process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. Developed at Google Ventures, it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behaviour science, design thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.

P.S. We know that the tech sector hasn’t been scoring so well on the diversity card. But diversity drives innovation. We’re taking a stand against our low diversity score by showcasing more women as role-models, leaders, mentors and speakers in the space. Join us to inspire more gender diversity in tech. Men are encouraged to support, share and attend too :)
