Welcome to your project idea journey!

We believe asking the right questions and examining ideas from different angles are key steps to building the right solutions (also see methods like Design Thinking, User-Centered Design, or User Experience Design). It is well worth spending time in the beginning setting everything up rather than missing the target. The great thing is that all these methodologies can be applied to any project or domain; see some examples below, from Apps 📱 to IoT 💡 to building MVPs 🛠️ to Space 🚀 and more!

Software Life Cycle
Ideate, Test, Implement, and Refine

So, we designed the Idea Pad to be your creative companion, guiding you from the spark of inspiration to a thorough reflection of your idea. At its core, it’s more than just a tool for jotting down thoughts; it’s a structured guide that prompts you with the right questions, ensuring you consider all facets of your idea.

Whether you are an entrepreneur brainstorming the next big thing, a business owner who wants to bring their service to potential customers, or an innovator solving complex problems, the Idea Pad is your roadmap to success.

Since every project is a journey, you may need a few extra helpers along the way, like a Navigator, Travel Guide, Expedition Leader, Survival Expert, or Medic. If so, do reach out to us 📣!

By the way, you can download the Idea Pad 📝 below for free. You can also sign up 🎁 for our newsletter or next physical goodie.

Some special journeys

Our very own journey

Are you tired of typing sometimes? We were, so we embarked on our own journey. Say hello to Stenoris 🎙️, our smart transcription web app.

Stakeholder workshop to kick off an IoT platform

An early stakeholder workshop to collect and map the expectations, individual stakeholder processes, and interfaces can help prioritize requirements and major features early.

Vision 2025 > MVP Dashboard > New Product

A small Vision 2025 workshop laid the foundation for a prototype monitoring dashboard, which then became the basis for a new product.

Mockups for «Rocket Science»

An iterative requirements engineering and design process, supported by mockups, can help refine even and guide complex projects in the Space domain.
