Ignition bootcamp day 5 - Looking forward (while looking back)
With some slight nostalgia, we have arrived at the very last tale in our Ignition Bootcamp series. Day 5 mostly functioned as a wrap-up of the previous four days. The...
Here are some of the most popular takeaways, that a lot of participants had in common:
- The absolute necessity to investigate and use (parts of) the new technologies like AI and blockchain (check Day 3 of the bootcamp, which had a big focus on tech)
- The insight that they would need to start thinking, working and acting in a different manner,bypassing biases and unnecessary habits
- Last, but absolutely not least, most of them described a personal transformation in which they were very much aware of their own impact on their environment: on their company and colleagues as well as friends and family
All of this was confirmed and strengthened by the stories of the participants of the previous Bootcamp (June of this year), which matched and merged seamlessly with those of this November. The day was ended with the fraternization of both parties and the further growth of the network that our Bootcamps are.
So. That’s it for this Ignition Bootcamp. Hope you enjoyed following our story! Check Day 1, Day 2,Day 3, and Day 4 of this series and stay tuned for the next bootcamps on Twitter, Facebookand LinkedIn!

For those who are not familiar with our Bootcamps, they are insanely intensive 5-day perspective-shifting experiences. We organize them because we believe that you cannot “learn” innovation. It is not a theory. But you can pick up an innovation mindset by opening your eyes to the biases that (mis)guide you, by incorporating radical new trends, by looking outside your comfort zone of knowledge and experience, by talking to mind-mates (like soulmates, but for the mind) from different sectors, and by thinking and doing things that might seem counterintuitive to you.
Our innovation Bootcamps don’t “teach”. They want to embed participants into a network of intelligence. They move beyond knowledge and aim for cognitive agility as well as real impact on how participants think and solve problems. In short: they transform the mind-set. This is how we help our bootcampers lay the groundwork for change.
