Play your part in global innovation

Fast-cycle crowdsourcing

Our global network of Universities is the key driver for the success of The Nimble Bee design competition.

The Nimble Bee platform makes it easy for students from all over the world to compete against each other and to come up with the best design.

It’s a unique experience to gather real life design experience, with feedback from international companies and end-users alike.

The top 3 winning designs are awarded with up to 6000 euros of total prize money per challenge!

The competition as part of the curriculum ensures highly qualitative designs.

Design thinking

Each competition is a series of iterations through a managed network of universities and consumer communities, resulting in valuable new ideas for the companies, and experience in real-life business for universities and students.
