For Project Partners
For Project Partner

Our project partners use the HPI D-School as a think-tank - and even more as a “do-tank” - to find solutions to their corporate and organizational issues. Project teams are composed of our project partners, our students and HPI D-School team members.  In 8 and 16 week projects you can develop creative, joint solutions for your real corporate problems.


Whether in logistics or media companies, global corporations or neighborhood associations - Design Thinking helps to creatively develop tomorrow's processes, products, services and organizations. At the HPI School of Design Thinking, partner organizations from a wide range of industries meet highly motivated and talented students.

In this overview you will find our current project partner portfolio. Together with the student teams our partners develop solutions to complex problems. Participation in our partner projects inspires organizations to further develop their innovation potential and prepare their organizational culture for transformation processes.

To get an idea of the challenges our partners are facing, we provide an insight into selected projects here. Every semester, the HPI D-School accepts new challenges with up to 16 project partners. The questions posed come from large corporations as well as from small and medium-size businesses, public institutions and NGOs.
