Next round for the InnovationGym!

The second round starts on February 4. The application phase is over, the participants are informed, the team around the workshops is ready!

We were able to select all participants for the format from numerous applications. Now we are looking forward to the upcoming start!

We will be accompanied by september Strategie & Forschung. The Cologne-based agency prevailed in a lengthy application process and, together with project managers Natalie Schneider and Wiebke Kersten, will accompany the innovative minds of our region and guide them through the four-stage process.


This is what Eva Bock (pictured left) and Lisa Overkamp have to say about themselves, their agency and the upcoming launch:

  • "Understanding the complexity of the challenges and having to use them positively for oneself and one's own company can quickly become discouraging. We proactively support team building, provide orientation, encourage participation and personal responsibility, and reinforce helpful behavior."
  • "We focus on the principles of agile leadership, empathy, motivation and coaching, authenticity and researcher's heart. Through our workshops and by combining these qualities, the innovative power once reserved for experts is now put in the hands of everyone."
  • "We bring the necessary empathy for the needs and constitutions of the executives - because we need courage and cohesion among all participants!

"The InnovationGym is about enabling the participants to initiate and implement innovations in their own companies after the workshop. Using methods such as design thinking, the participants are enabled to identify and solve problems in their own companies and to develop new ideas," explains Natalie Schneider, who is responsible for the project.

We are already looking forward to the start and hopefully to many new and productive exchanges!
