Global Business Match

Global Business Match is a full-scale international matchmaking program to solve business challenges related to sustainable urbanization.
Duration: Tailored workshops 2 to 6 days or 3 to 6 months.

Our mission is to Bridge Urban Challenges of Today with Solutions of Tomorrow

How it works

Through our design-based multidisciplinary approach, we mobilize the BLOXHUB ecosystem to ideate and create solutions and business models for a specific business challenge.

The challenge is identified by an international ”challenge owner”. Together, we create a number of solution concepts in the ideation phase and a conceptual design proposal and partner cooperation agreement in the creation phase.

The Global Business Match workshops are offered to our international partners, stakeholders, networks and ALL members of the BLOXHUB ecosystem. Workshops are held in BLOXHUB and on relevant locations.
