Spark a conversation and learn more at our monthly innovation breakfasts.

Curious about innovation, R&D, and creative problem solving? Join us for a chat to exchange ideas over breakfast.

Breakfast is a shared culture amongst all Design Factories in the global network (DFGN). These breakfasts create the environment for serendipitous meetings and the exchange of ideas. Come to breakfast for good coffee, an opportunity to meet new people from different cultures, industries, professions, and disciplines for an inspired start to the day… Oh and a delicious breakfast!

“You never know who might be at our breakfasts — students, start-up founders, or CEOs — it’s a level playing field for the free exchange of ideas”

As.Prof. Anita Kocsis, Director DFM

Coffee + Office = Kafis. Without spontaneous meetings with strangers, it is hard to pass on tacit knowledge or to even know what other people at work are doing. The Kafis workspace concept is developed just for this purpose — making people more accessible.
