Weak Signal's description 
Palomor5 is an (currently running) innovation camp looking for creative young people to develop ideas for new working environments that fit the needs and skills of the digital generation. 30 young and creative minds were invited to stay in Berlin (location size: 2000sqm). During 6 weeks, completely financed by Deutsche Telekom, participants have the opportunity to bring their thoughts and ideas to life. Participants were selected to represent a mix of nationalities, genders, and professions with a broad variety of skills and interests. At the end, ideas will be presented to a selected public during a summit: people from business, politics and media that can take on their solutions and introduce them into everyday working life. Palomar5 was established as a non-profit initiative seeking innovation outside of corporate structures. The founders of Palomar5 feel that “innovation” itself is in need of reformation.
