MietwagenPiraten is a small German start-up that wanted to explore the idea of automating the search process to find interesting car rental deals, targeted at the high-end car rental power users. An interdisciplinary team of students researched methods to gather and compare data from different rental companies, created a visual identity, suggested a few business model prototypes and prototyped a working online web app.
"The student's project was a great way to test and validate our business ideas. The students generated a lot of ideas so that we even did a small pivot and changed our business plan. We were very satisfied with the project results. It is best to approach the students with a problem - and they will solve it for you. "
