Online Design Sprint

The Challenge

How might we facilitate a 3 day online sprint for 5 young Estonian startups part of the Elevator Startups Incubator?

Mischief Approach

We designed an online sprint working with both Zoom and Mural in order to enhance collaboration,  productivity and collective knowledge between sub-teams and all incubator participants. Teams agreed on a problem worth solving, decided on a solution to try out and built a simple test to validate if this solution would solve their problem.


  • 5 start-ups set up and defined their services and / or product through a condensed 3 day design sprint

  • Gaining great insights through collective input and peer to peer feedback

  • Each product or services has been tested by 3-5 users.

“We are living through a paradigm shift. As somebody who used to avoid online meetups, I am now converted! Mischief Makers’ fully online design sprint was an eye-opener: not simply as productive as a physical meetup, but more so. The Makers are demonstrably experienced facilitators who keep the experience engaging, fun and just a little quirky.”
