EVERYONE HAS THAT ONE IDEA BUT DOESN'T WANT TO 
SPEND A FORTUNE

Nevertheless, great products are created anyway with almost zero budget. How do they succeed?

What does the best path to innovation look like? Do you really need an Investor or a big budget? You often feel like you keep hitting a wall. You’re frustrated. Every hurdle you’ve cleared so far seems like pure luck and your road is plastered with stop signs.

When you just start creating something bigger than you, the true pain of an innovator kicks in. What actually stops you from bringing your innovation to market?

SYMPTOM 1

YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN DREAMING ABOUT BRINGING YOUR PRODUCT IDEA TO MARKET?

But you don’t know how and where to start. “What and who do I need?” “How much time and money will it take for my idea to see light of day?” Have you been asking yourself these questions?

SYMPTOM 2

YOU ARE NOT SURE IF YOUR IDEA WILL REALLY BE A SUCCESS

You have never done any innovation projects before and feel kind of lost because you don’t really know what it needs to implement your idea and don’t want to take any unnecessary risks either – knowing that over 90% of all products fail after their market launch. All that has been daunting and preventing you from finally getting started.

SYMPTOM 3

YOU CAN'T SPEND A FORTUNE

Your innovation budget is close to zero and you have been trying to find investors to build your product and found a company. You think you need costly manpower or even specialists to implement your idea. And you wonder where to get all that money from that it needs to make your idea become a reality.

SYMPTOM 4

YOU HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT YOUR IDEA FOR YEARS

You have tried everything, given everything. However, you have noticed how your own frustration level keeps rising and your motivation constantly decreasing.

SYMPTOM 5

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO BUILD IT RIGHT.

Its like building a house. For most of us we do it once or twice in livetime. So how on earth should you know how to do it? 

Then again most templates and book are focused on the theoretical part and dont provide any execution insights so you despretaly looking for someone who can show you the easiest and fastest way possible.

I’VE BEEN RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE

Any startup pitfalls out there? I've fallen into all of them.

From not being heard despite having great ideas, to resistant people and completely bloated innovation approaches. From struggling to hire the agency to not knowing where to start at all . I've been there and gone through all that. Being an innovator myself, I can feel your pain, too.

Facing all these challenges, I've learned the hard way what doesn't work. But thanks to what I have experienced myself, I can prevent all that from happening to you.

And in addition to showing you all the things that don't work, I can show you what does work by sharing my knowledge with you.

15+ years of experience in the innovation development business.

Together with my team I`ve worked with 7 out of 9 of the most innovative German companies worldwide!

“FROM IDEA TO MARKET WITHOUT A BIG INVEST. REALLY?”

You bet. Instead of playing the endless "I believe, you believe" game, we develop tangible high glossy prototypes and go to market straight away.

But it's not that easy. You'll need a bulletproof process called Innoweek®. Our goal is to find out in the fastest possible way if a new product works without the need to actually building it in all details. We stop the guessing game!

Groundbreaking innovative products and services are no longer out of reach. You thought only a genius could develop, launch and validate a product within such a short time and without budget? Nope. Our Startup Bootcamp will enable you and your team to do the same.

With 15 years of experience in innovation and a long list of customers including well-known DAX companies, but also a large number of startups, I can tell you it doesn’t take more than a week to bring your product idea to the market. And it doesn’t need a big fortune either.

01

FORGET ABOUT THE 
PERFECT PRODUCT

You want to learn how to develop tangible products within the shortest possible time? We are going to show you the system behind as well as all the tricks of the trade – a process that we have continuously been improving over the years.

02

DON’T LET YOURSELF FALL INTO 
PROCRASTINATION

That can happen very easily if you lack the courage ofthe one who may have the same idea as you and just implements it.

In fact, there's nothing more painful, more soul-crushing than having a great innovation idea, only to watch a competitor going to market with it before you.

So why let someone else win the race if your success can be just one week away?

03

REDUCE YOUR COSTS RIGHT AWAY.

Startup budgets are always tight.
Or maybe you even have to raise money from scratch.

What if it took one week only to build a tangible and testable version of your product idea? To get real customer feedback instead of building your product and trying to find a market for it afterwards?

04

STOP TALKING 
START DOING

Great ideas need and deserve execution. Therefore, it would be a pity if they didn’t see light of day for reasons that don’t actually exist.

If it doesn’t need months or years, if it doesn’t take huge budgets –why not start straight away?

BENEFIT FROM OUR EXPERIENCE

Nearly two decades in the startup industry, plus proven processes, templates and mindset tips.

You can overcome these hurdles all by yourself, but our experience is here and available for you. Learn from our mistakes so that you won't lose your motivation or miss the unique opportunity to implement your idea. Whatever path you take – it won’t be easy. But we've put every red flag,warning sign and how-to into this entire program.

That's what makes the Startup Bootcamp so different from any other program out there. We have actually been there, done that.

IT’S NOT ABOUT JUST BUYING THIS COURSE.

The Startup Bootcamp needs more than watching the course as an entertainment. Bringing a product to the market requires your full commitment.

I’m not going to show you shortcuts to success because they don’t exist. What I can promise though is that your investment in the startup Bootcamp will help you save time, tons of money, and reduce your workload. Being where I am now took me decades of learning innovation the hard way – a fact that will prevent you from making the same mistakes yourself.

I can’t do the work for you, but I can support you and catch you when you fall. If you want your ideas to successfully make it to market, this course will help empower you to achieve that.
