HPI D-School Partner Day 2019
At the HPI D-School more than 2,500 students have developed creative solutions for numerous design challenges in over 200 projects and together with project partners from 15 industries in the past eleven years. The result are numerous innovative prototypes, many implemented ideas, and stories of success that triggered organizational change.
At the HPI D-School Partner Day we invite our project partners to meet our Design Thinking community. The Partner Day is an exclusive gathering of project partners from all kinds of industries and organizations, alumni, coaches and current HPI D-School students to reconnect and discuss the latest developments in Design Thinking. Our partners share experiences on the application of Design Thinking in different projects and exchange insights of successes and challenges during the implementation of these projects.
