What’s included in the design sprint
You and your team will be guided by our head of products through a structured process to create your first, tested prototype. A design sprint is the fastest and most cost-efficient method to get your team on the same page and to deliver. You and your ideas will be openly challenged by the voices of your future customers to ensure the solution you decided to build can stand the test of the market.
Begin with the right challenge to broadly know what problem you want to solve
Ensure you have the right and complete team that can contribute, if you are missing some skills we can provide them (e.g. designer or software engineer)
Be prepared to engage, sketch and write
Clear your schedule for the entire duration of the sprint
Two day design sprint example
Bringing together the right team, you’ll need a broad range of skillsets and deciders. We’ll fill in the skills gaps if required.
Our head of products and partner Marcus Kuhn will facilitate, lead the design sprint to ensure we achieve the goal of the sprint on time.
Throughout the sprint there will be a series of hands-on activities, discussions and exchanges, including problem definition, sketching solutions, storyboarding of user journey, customer interviews, feedback sessions and prototyping.
Towards the end of the design sprint the idea will be tested with test customers (e.g. interviews or online surveys) to provide further feedback.
Aftermath and outlook
Prototype, designs and report from the design sprint will be shared
The end of the design sprint translates smoothly to the validation with the external audience and the MVP scope workshop to define the Minimum Viable Product (MVP).
We guide you through this process. Depending on where you stand, we hold a workshop or design sprint adapted to your needs and use this input to create a vision for your MVP.
You have a problem to solve. Various ideas and designs have been tested to create the first prototype.
The product prototype was tested in multiple iterations by early adopters. You gathered feedback and tested customer demand.
You reduce the scope to the core features to give users the maximum value. A functional concept and a roadmap is created.
Minimum Viable Product (MVP)
Developing in sprints and testing the MVP with focus groups and test customers before launching in the market.
Go to market strategy
Building on the previous insights – we develop a strategy to acquire first 5, 50, 500….50’000 customers.
Product market fit
Never ending cycle of continuous learning and collection of insights to develop & improve your product.

“We go above and beyond to show you how to make your ambition reality. The design sprint channels our energy to develop the best possible solution in the shortest time possible. There is simply no better way. “
What is a design sprint?
A process to develop a product through prototyping and testing. It is a face paced agile way of product development to establish initial processes to develop the MVP.
The design sprint was developed by a group of designers at Google Ventures that wanted to create a standardised process to help generate and validate ideas in a short time. Initially a design sprint was a five day process but this has since been shortened to 2-4 days.

We’re a startup. Can we afford you?
It depends. We are always interested in working on ventures with high growth potential and ambitious founders who are ready to hustle. Your product’s potential and your determination are important factors we consider when qualifying opportunities. Your initial budget is secondary.
Do you invest in startups or do work for equity?
Not at this time. While we have made a couple of exceptions in the last few years, we’ve proven that our team is 100% engaged regardless of the commercial constellation. Plus, keeping clear separation helps us focus.
