DesignThinkers Academy provides time and space for teams and individuals to be inspired and challenged. To learn by doing and finally, to strengthen their ability for creative problem solving. The ever changing world around us pressures people and teams in organizations to be more flexible, entrepreneurial and customer centered. While these organizations are pushed to differentiate themselves, DesignThinkers Academy makes it their mission to reach out to these people and help them. In order to maintain and develop these capabilities the environment demands.

DesignThinkers Academy aims to inspire people and teams by organizing thought-provoking events to help organizations build the necessary capabilities. Therefore, we organize events, lectures, trainings and personal coaching programs to reach those goals. These events offer the knowledge and teach you the mindset of Design Thinking. In other words, we aim to create an open network to facilitate and inspire a rich conversation between creative thinkers and doers. We strive for a learning community that has a positive impact on people’s lives, careers and our ever-changing world.
