As a result of winning the TandemCampIII TechBridge competition, MonitorFish and our collaborator Fraunhofer IGD were invited to attend the TEX-workshop in Munich which we gratefully accepted. From MonitorFish our CTO Dominik Ewald and Freelance Associate Johannes Wittig attended. Later during the week Helmut Tödtmann the technical lead from the Fraunhofer IGD joined us.

The workshop in Munich was set for 5 days from 9:30 till 18:00 and had a tightly packed program, but luckily also generous amounts of Bavarian food and coffee. With the help of many different Business templates from Orange Hills like Business Model, Hypotheses and Experiments, Competitive Landscape, Lean Offering and more we learned new valuable insights on how to prioritize and achieve project goals of MonitorFish to move forward to a product offering. Each day included short pitches followed by Q and A rounds. The Q and A was of great help, we learned a lot about several aspects of our business that we haven’t seen before but also were able to contribute meaningfully to the projects of the other teams.  In addition, we had many discussions during coffee, lunch and dinner with the other teams and the excellent supervisors of the event.

Later during the week, a team of designers from Nizeone joined the event to help us and the others to develop and refine a prototype and a website for presentation. Since our project was more mature than the ones of the other teams, this was an excellent opportunity for us to get feedback for improvement. Thanks to all these different aspects we were able to find key questions about product development and presentation that we need to answer to progress with the development of an MVP which we are intending for later this year.

After Finishing some of the hard work on Thursday we all went out to a local Restaurant, the Augustiner Keller and had a proper Bavarian meal and a couple of beers. Obviously, the discussions about the business ideas and many other things did go on.

Finally, on the last day, we summarised all the learned aspects into an action plan which contains all the milestones that must be achieved and when. We want to thank everyone that helped at this workshop and delivered such a great atmosphere for learning, discussion and development of ideas. Special Thanks go to our Supervisor Niels Dietzsch from Fraunhofer Venture who spent lots of time discussing various questions with us.
