The Places _ WORKshop at the Places _ Festival 2021 is a cooperation between the Places _ VR Festival and the Westfälische Hochschule. Here we offer the opportunity to take a deep dive into a concrete start-up and product development strategy in the field of extended reality in a small group. Participation is free of charge, but registration is required.

This workshop will be held in German

Fail Fast in XR! Start up fast. Fail Fast.

WORKshop Content:

To found a start-up, entrepreneurial spirit and a good idea are not everything. Rather, it requires methods with the right tool sets and frameworks that allow for quick failure on a small scale in the building phases of a start-up, especially for XR products and services that stand out for their innovation.
This is how you can establish long-term success or identify the need for alternative approaches.

Sergiu Ardelean CEO of AR Startup Artivive gives insights into his founding story.

Johannes Lammers und Simon Boeing-Messing von der Westfälischen Hochschule stellen einige dieser Methoden vor und laden ein zum schnellen Scheitern.

The WORKshop takes place at the Heidelbürger premises, Heidelberger Str. 8-10.

The WORKshop is organised in cooperation with the Westfälische Hochschule Gelsenkirchen
and the initiative “Andersmachen”.
