The Startup Masterclass

Spring 2023 batch

Applications are closed.

A free Product Design Sprint for early-stage startups

We invest a total of five days in improving your product and taking it to the next level. The Masterclass is free, our output is yours, and if you convince us, we become one of your seed investors.


  1. We select between one and three startups for each batch. We run one batch in Spring and one in Fall.
  2. We deliver a full Design Product Sprint no matter your product stage (equivalent value: 9’285 CHF).
  3. The Masterclass is highly customized to your startup. The only commonality is a ruthless focus on your product.
  4. Whatever we create is yours to work with, no strings attached.
