Students will participate in four workshop sessions and a final pitch event. Their task is to develop a business plan for a digital social start-up idea, which will be presented at the end of the course. In addition, the students have to submit a written summary of the social business model canvas. This will be evaluated with 3 ECTS points.
For bachelor students of Business Informatics:

The Digital Social Innovation Lab-Young Academy is a learning format with workshop sessions in which students work in teams (four to five students) and apply DesignThinking methods to develop an idea for a digital social start-up. In the classroom sessions, students will start with ideation and idea-reframing and then develop their own digital social business model. Additionally, they will learn about social impact measurement and get input on storytelling and a pitch training. At the end of the seminar, all the student teams will have to present their business ideas at the final pitch event in front of an expert jury!
Students of Business Informatics additionally have to complete a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). Here they will get more information about the topic „Purpose and New Work“. Students will participate in the MOOC parallel to the offline workshops which will contain short knowledge quizzes. To participate at the final examination, all parts of the MOOC have to be completed.
