Collaboration Circle

The collaboration circle started 2021 and is a format that offers a platform for Design at Business members to meet and connect at eye level on a regular basis, both in person and virtually.

It‘s the place where members come together to:

  • Share and talk openly and honestly about their experiences, success stories and most difficult challenges or failures
  • Learn about new topics, get inspiration and impulses
  • Ideate and prototype new ideas, methods and approaches
  • Work on and drive defined topics or projects and act as thought leaders
  • Come together to have a good time and have fun


Staying connected, keeping the community alive and fostering exchange and learning about the latest and greatest topics and developments on a regular basis is the core of DatB.

Only by providing opportunities to join our hearts, brains and hands we can make an impact that counts.
