According to Aigi Kukk, product development and design project manager at Enterprise Estonia (EAS), the developments of all participating companies were remarkable. “This time it was very difficult for jury to decide on the winner. The services and products presented were on the highest level. Some of the teams brought the ideas to life and developed actual products. Moreover, some of them reached first sales. The program has helped companies to define right targets, evoke motivation and provide the tools they need to develop a product more effectively through strategic design,” said Kukk.
