The fourth module of our NEW BUSINESS (the one year further training for entrepreneurs with existing and new projects) took place in the Lower East Lab in Berlin.

The NEW BUSINESS #2-team worked very intense for three days on developing and expanding their business ideas. The theme for this module was purpose & direction; looking at “where do you come from and what is your dream? What have you learnt from your journey so far and how can you use these lessons for your further growth? How can you move with your dreams, visualize them and inspire others with them?“

The days in Berlin also played a vital part as inspiration for the participants. Talking to people, walking the streets of the city, looking at things from the distance, and having time to discuss the bigger ideas and to put attention to important details. Berlin is a quite perfect place to dig into how businesses also can be done.

Next module will take place back in Bern, Switzerland, in September.
If you are interested in the NEW BUSINESS program, we have scheduled:
– bring your business idea(s) and your questions to our master program NEW BUSINESS.

Right now the New Business people are working in Berlin for three days in the Lower East Lab.

Exploring Berlin, observing trends and tendencies that could be relevant for their businesses, asking themselves questions like:
• What cycles do I see here?
• How does this inform me about my own rhythms?
• What can I learn from these developments?
• Where do I sense a strong signal and where do I sense weak or very subtle and fine signals?
• What could this mean for the best possible planning in my NEW BUSINESS and with my activities and projects?

Much more to come here from Berlin, stay tuned on this blog.
