Dear Special ones
After some unexpected troubles we are now back on track!
We are still working on our plan A – to put our great flavours in caps… we strive to provide you the best possible tastes and to make your water a dream in peach, green apple or raspberry flavour. But no worries if our plan A does not work, we have a fantastic B-side up in our sleeves. Often best tracks are on the B-side. We do not see the problem, but only find solutions…
and as an old proverb says: “If ‘Plan A’ did not work out, don’t worry, the alphabet has 25 more letters”
One of our best painters from Serbia is now and for the next 2 months in Switzerland!

What a good time in Singapore! We are still at the Nanyang Technology Center!
After writing our beloved pretest, Professor Boh Wah Fond gave us a very interesting lesson about design thinking. Keep in mind one important sentence she said : “Do you have a good idea? Check first the desirability, the feasibility as well as the viability “
Afterwards we had a good time and funny experiences with local food….
Then…we discovered a giant 360 degres3D Screen and an almost human Robot at the Institute of Media Innovation! A Foto of “her” (Nadine, the Robot), is available on the study trip twitter Group “#heg_fr_singapore” !
At the end of that great day, Dr. Frank Guan showed us the “Ten faces of Innovation”… Look at the funny summary his Assistant made for you!
6th of October: First Day at the Nanyang Technopreneurship Center! A great but fully day! Professor Roderick Chia first introduced us to Singapore’s history and way of life, then we learned a lot in his entrepreneurial marketing course. Afterwards, a team of local students joined us to realize an amazing project together! Check some information we learned today, which you also could be interested in!
Meeting at Boston University
We began the last day of our study trip with lectures at Boston University. First with professor Vinit Nijhawan, who told us that the entrepreneur’s focus and only ambition is to satisfy customer needs. Then the last lecture was giving by Mr Erik Molander, who taught us the customer discovery phase analysis which must be a central piece of the entrepreneurial mindset. Thereafter we had the privilege to talk to both of them during the lunch break.
Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship & Novartis
In the afternoon we went to the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, where we had the honour the meet Bill Autet. His presentation was about the 24 steps to a successful start-up, a schema which appears in his book, a must read for future entrepreneurs.
The day as well as this trip ended in the Novartis building. We had a “solar impulse and the Swiss American aerospace connections” conference preceded by a networking session. This conference was held by the MIT professor Olivier De Weck. We learned the technological advances in this field as well as the issues they face.
Boston and Worcester are cities we recommend not only for study trips or pleasure but definitely for business.
