Online: Vitality and Structure for the New Work-Tools and Thoughts

What do you do if you want to start a business avoiding bossy atmosphere and classical hierarchies? In this workshop, you will learn more about reorganisation possibilities and find the right structure for your business idea, which will allow constant development and exchange.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this course will be facilitated online using a mixture of daily live-sessions and guided tasks to be completed.

Naturally, we start with small ideas. The idea has the potential to grow, and you find the right people to bring it into life. You might feel that direction and framing are needed, but you don’t want to act bossy, especially when friends are involved. On the other hand, you also don't want to create a pyramid hierarchy that slows down your creativity and cooperation. 

What to do if we want to start a business without that bossy manner and classical hierarchy? It is about bringing something as meaningful as useful to the world. Rather, we want to cooperate and our business should be able to grow. Together.

We want both a lively, open culture with space to evolve and grow and professionalism with a focus on results. Combined with a high degree of autonomy for the individual and at the same time working together on the same goal. What do I have to pay attention to when I want to set up a purpose-driven organization?

In the workshop, we will share proven approaches with you, show you what (didn't) worked for us, exchange ideas, and learning together.


Artists, young professionals, and social entrepreneurs are welcome to participate in the course. Participants should be curious, open-minded, willing to collaborate with others, and passionate about their field of expertise.


Please send us a short mail in advance, that outlines your motivation for participating in the course.
