Addictlab has twenty years of experience organising brainstorming and ideation projects for big corporates, governments and start ups. Yourownlab is our business consultancy unit. Because your company, organisation, brand should also act as a creative laboratory to innovate. What we learn at Addictlab, we can offer you too. Hence a whole list of our consultancy services and tools, going from Inspiration Showers, Safari’s, Imaginary Magazines to Creative X-Rays. In the Addictlab Academy, we use that experience to offer team building activities to companies and organisations.
The act of creating, regardless of what discipline, is a valuable activity to do in group. Creating, eg giving life to a concept, product or idea that didn’t exist before is an experience that can be shared, discussed and enhanced by any team. Add to that a series of new technologies, brainstorm methodologies and tools in a lab surrounding, where everything is allowed and failure should be part of the process, and you have a fertile environment for building your team.
Addictlab has a history of consultancy for big and small entreprises, companies, organisations and companies. Use our tools to brainstorm, define new ideas and even prototype. Ask for our deliverables after brainstorm sessions.
SDG impact evaluation.
How does your company or organisation score related to the SDGs? How can you make your brand, products, organisations compliant to the United Nations’s 2030 goals? With partners such as the University of Geneva, the SDG lab, the SDG solution space, and custom created tools based on the SDGs, a session will help you to evaluate – and create sustainable change.

An important aspect is the challenges the group will face during the event. This should be set based on prior briefing. We encourage an intake meeting to discuss the needs, specifics, the background of the team and company we will host. The lab challenges thus set necessary goals of the session, and is important to the design and navigation of the team building session.
By way of example, a team building session (minimum of 2 hours) can look like this:
- Welcoming and introduction to the space
- Inspiration shower : ideas from the Addictlab database
- group initiation & profiling
- profiling of all participants, and ice breaking (We use our Creative cards system : creativecards.wordpress.com)
- activity 1 – Use the 3doodler to work on a 3D drawn object/artpiece together.
- activity 2 – Arduino : learn to code and program.
- activity 3 : program the Sphero robots & play a ‘sphero mini golf tournament’
- Ideation on one of Addictlab’s generic research themes (eg your ideas on..)
- getting concrete : production of prototype – share what has been created – discuss
With what do you walk away? What comes out of a session? Do not ‘just’ have an afternoon of alternative fun in a lab. Build, prepare, document.
Ask for our imaginary magazine concept, our Idea database, and more.
We go all the way in creating brand experiences : even food and space can be designed to reinforce the theme of the day or the brand at hand.
Do not take your people into a boring hotel seminar space with carpets. We select spaces that are inspirational.
With our activities, the lab space at the campus Biotech, the publication of the SDGZINE magazine, the fab labs and maker spaces, Addictlab is part of an innovative eco system in Geneva that can organise your hackatons, brainstorming sessions and team building events in a truly unique and credible environment.
