The WAKE UP program is designed for young entrepreneurs who want to set up their own businesses, use innovative methods, create innovative business ideas and realize their dreams. 3 Days Design Sprint is carried out by idea development, product development and creating a lean business model.
"TİM-TEB Startup Houses" applied the sprints with students who have not yet found a business idea and teach them how to achieve the right product-market fit with Design Thinking methods.
Turkey Exporters Assembly (TİM) and Turkish Economy Bank (TEB) have conducted Wake Up program multiple times at more than 30 Universities in Turkey. I created and run the program in 2016 and 2017.
