Lower East Lab

it’s the blog

This is the blog for lower east & lower east lab. A mix of stuff from our design & communication world (things we do, things we have done, and things we experience and get inspired from) and news from our lab – where all kind of actions and experiments can happen – that be workshops, creative meetings, urban safaris (with focus on start up, architecture, design or food), and events, dinners and a lot more.

New Business in Lower East Lab

March 9, 2015

Last week we had a three day NEW BUSINESS WORKSHOP here in the Lower East Lab. The 6th module of NEW BUSINESS, a one year further training (9 modules of three days each) for people who want to grow their project ideas into sustainable and inspiring businesses – a mastery program for passionate entrepreneurs with existing and new projects and business dreams.

This 6th module we placed here in Berlin. The training normally takes place in the Innovations Dorf in Bern (the home and house of the Kaos­Pilots Switzerland, changels, New Business and many other ­projects and companies).

The focus of our module 6 is on interrelatedness and timing. This means a focus on:
• How is my business idea connected to other cycles right now?
• What else is going on around me… in nature, in the environment, in society, in groups and companies…?
• And how can we use these cycles for best possible timing of our own dreams and actions?

This module is also about becoming aware of trends and tendencies, so we can use them for our own business design.
• What are others doing?
• How can we be inspired by that for our own actions?

The fine group of people attending NEW BUSINESS, showed up in Berlin with their expectations high up – and we had three fantastic days!

We did our very best, used all the good stuff from the Lower East toolbox to put together some good and inspiring days. Used our experiences from counseling, teaching, working with communication and design, adding splashes of Urban Safari Berlin, adding food, recipes and spices from the Camillo’s Kitchen – supplying with the warmth and calmness the lab can also offer.

If you are curious to know more about the mastery program (a new programme will start May 2015 (intro) / September 2015 (first module)) please follow this link to the changels website and find all the info put together in one pdf, or (always first with the good news of course!) the lower east blog here.

The NEW BUSINESS blog is also up and running, still in its very beginning…

You are also very welcome to attend the open door event in the Innovations Dorf in Bern on March 13th, where the New Business has it’s own window. More info on that here.

Enough of links and words!
