Design Sprints rapidly validate a potential product or service at minimal cost. Elabor8 provides expert facilitation and guidance.

The most successful deployment of capital isn’t just about working quickly – it’s about working quickly in the right direction. Design Sprints are a tried and true approach to rapidly developing and validating a potential product or service and ensure that we minimise resource expenditure.

Our Approach

We take a collaborative approach to design a sprint format based on your unique context. Whether you are seeking investment, product direction, validating assumptions or looking to present working prototypes we will work with you to deliver the desired outcomes.

Hack Day Case Studies

Our team of Innovation Consultants have facilitated Design Sprints for fast paced startups through to large corporates working with many of Australia’s most iconic brands. We consistently exceed client needs and expectations, delivering a tailored sprint format that helps achieve business objectives while uplifting skills and culture.


Xero were looking to validate large assumptions around a potential product opportunity. We help design and facilitate a sprint to meet this objective designing an accelerated sprint with daily customer interviews. By day three we were running Facebook and email campaigns and by day five we had launched six successful campaigns and experiments.


Elabor8 conducted an innovation partnership with SEEK, facilitating what we believe to be Australia’s first Design Sprint over seven days. With a complex problem space we built in extra days to create empathy and testing “outside of the building” allowing participants to hone-in on customer pain-points. The sprint was highly successful with multiple ideas now in live production.
