We believe that entrepreneurial activities like planning, designing and actually building new business models are a perfect hotbed for complex and sustainable learning experiences, addressing and developing some of the most relevant competencies for your professional performance.
We also believe that simulating reality ends up in weaker results than experiencing your challenges in reality itself. Therefore in our learning program we not only work with business related fictional exercises, but with Flairlifter you and your team are asked to start up a real enterprise in the market. Without a safety-net. This is what we call entrepreneurial learning.
Our new educational concept is naturally developing 6 key competencies:
The Lift is structured in the pre-sequence "Heat" and the four main sequences "Envision", "Plan", "Build" and "Run".
Each sequence is constructed as follows:
_theoretical impulse taught by the coaches
_moderated and self-organized implementation in teams
_feedback and reflection on individual and team level
This sequence actually is no part of the 24 hour Lift itself. It is a pre-sequence to make sure all team members are in some way acquainted to each other once the Lift begins. It consists of a mixture of upfront online social media interaction and on-site rapid teambuilding activities.
In case the team already exists (e.g. within a company) and it is used to working together, this sequence might even be skipped.
The StartUp process starts with a creative phase of idea generation. Together with your team you come up with thoughts on new innovative business ideas, assessing them and starting market research based on your solution concepts.
In a second Phase, your team starts designing a business model that addresses all relevant aspects of your new company – your value proposition, infrastructure, customers, and finances. In Addition, you set up a project plan and assign tasks to your team members.
Now you put your project plan into action and execute every task that is needed to bring your business idea to life. You regularly report your status to your team and track your progress. Frequent feedback loops will help you to be flexible through your implementation.
Finally a new company is born. Yeah! Now you are on the real market, getting in touch with your real customers. Part of your project plan will cover your post-go-live activities, such as direct marketing, social media activities, advertising and analytics, as well as customer interviews etc. This phase will be filled with a lot of feedback and pivots on your way to compelling products and processes.
Through the Lift you are permanently guided and supported by a team of our experienced StartUp and Learning Coaches.
The StartUp Coach introduces you into the most important theories, tools and procedures you will need to know and how to follow a structured way in developing a new business model.
The Learning Coach observes you and your team and installs regular feedback loops for you, so that you can be faster and more successful with your project and identify personal mid-term areas for improvement.

Furthermore, two weeks before the seminar starts, all participants will receive an invitation to a Facebook-group. In this group, videos and pre-reads will be uploaded, to make sure that you will be best prepared for the training.
No. Some of your team partners will decide to work through the 24 hours, but this is by no means obligatory or expected. Everyone has to decide on his own, when and how often she/ he uses relaxation breaks.
You can only register with our registration form. Other ways of registration are prohibited and will not be processed. After receiving your registration, we will send you a booking confirmation and approximately 2 weeks before the start of the Seminar, you will receive an invitiation with all the required information.

It is completely up to you whether or not to continue working on the project with some or all of your team mates. Flairlifter makes no claim to the rights of participation founded during the seminar sequence company. Those rights to the company's founding remain exclusively with the participants of the seminar.
The purpose of the training is not the creation of a company. The training is absolutely focused on your individual and team development and learning process.The start-up process is a methodological framework, motivator and context, but in the end the Lift is only about you. Our guiding principle is to deliver you a unique and sustaining learning experience.
Our specially trained StartUp & Learning Coaches will guide you through all phases during the start-up process. But we try to focus on practical issues, that will actually help you and your team mates to implement your ideas.
