“For most companies, there’s no shortage of ideas. The difficult bit is making ideas actually happen".

Designforum specializes in optimizing innovation and entrepreneurship through Design Thinking. A select group of top designers work on real life cases that are presented by companies and organizations looking for new perspectives on issues that concern improvement or innovation. Are you dealing with an issue that needs solution thinking? Within the program Making Ideas Happen we can offer you three different 'case solving' approaches.

You introduce the case so designers can explore the involved issues together
Meet and select the Designers you want to work on the specific challenge.
