MONKEY BOX CASE
THE MONKEY BOX – FROM IDEA TO MVP
The Monkey Box is an in-house developed IoT product that facilitates decentralized fundraising for social enterprises. Based on an initial idea, a physical MVP including cloud connection, crypto wallet, web platform and first test application for a social startup was developed in just a few weeks with the help of our MVP XP Sprint process. The Monkey Box uses a simple example to make the interdisciplinary, agile character of U-Experten visible.

FOUR STEPS TO YOUR SUCCESS
Design thinking methods tailored to smart connected devices lead to a clear structure and a memorable visualization of ideas, use cases and value propositions.
The assignment of user stories to key features creates clarity and unambiguous requirements for devices (e.g. for sensors and interfaces), cloud and connectivity.
From user-friendliness to system architecture to pricing, all the essential ingredients for the success of a product must be checked and made tangible.
A “Minimum Viable Product” (MVP) is the first release of a product or service with just enough features to delight early customers and adopters.
