The Method: Understanding Design Thinking

Ever wondered how great products are born? It starts with design thinking—a systematic approach to unleashing creativity, deeply understanding users, and iterating solutions rapidly. At its core, design thinking involves five phases: empathize with your users; define the problems; ideate with no limits; prototype possible solutions; and test to learn and improve. Perfect for idea development, this methodology is designed to navigate the complexities of any challenge creatively.

The Challenge: Solve for Tomorrow – AI for Society

Doing something with your fresh idea sounds good? We think so too! That’s why we encourage you to submit your idea to the “Solve for tomorrow” challenge hosted by SAMSUNG and ekipa:

Imagine using AI technology to create sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact on society. "Solve for Tomorrow" invites you to do just that—merge entrepreneurship with digitalization and create disruptive business models in areas like social inclusion, health, education, and more. In this year’s challenge, SAMSUNG is focusing on AI to address real societal challenges, e.g. how can AI be used to stay healthy or improve the health industry or where AI opens up opportunities for smart communities, where citizens are better connected, and resources are provided more efficiently. Join SAMSUNG and ekipa in embracing the transformative power of AI!

While participation in the challenge is optional, this is a great opportunity to showcase your innovation on a global stage with Samsung as your partner. You can use the methods you learn in the workshop to create a fantastic idea that could win you up to 10.000 € and a collaboration with Samsung. All you have to do is submit your idea online by June 16.

More info on the challenge will follow.
