DesignFarmBerlin

DesignFarmBerlin

Designers are entrepreneurs with passion for content: DesignFarmBerlin is a new ESF funded initiative of the Weißensee Academy of Art Berlin aiming at inverting the traditional startup practice (as "earning money" is no idea): instead of developing the business model first followed by defining the product, choosing the technology and then calling a designer we are convinced that design has the power to detect emerging needs, ask the right questions and thus drive innovation. So DesignFarmBerlin is up to demonstrate that design-driven start ups can be meaningful and at least as successful as business models born on a spreadsheet. The DesignFarmBerlin is granting combined scholarships and mentorships for design-in-tech startup initiatives thus providing everything needed to establish and grow within the fertile grounds of Berlins creative tech scene.
