Think.Make.Start – Where the idea for Hawa Dawa was born


During his MBA course Karim Tarraf, one of Hawa Dawa’s co-founders, attended the  THINK.MAKE.START. class. The goal of this interdisciplinary class is to develop a product within 2 weeks. Karim’s team decided for a project to develop a portable measurement device for asthmatics, which indicates the level of air pollution.

THINK. MAKE. STARTis a two-week course hosted by TUM’s Lab for Product Development and Lightweight Design, designed to foster innovation giving students the chance to work on real-world problems, exploring the potential of new technologies or challenges by developing new solutions. The goal is to promote innovation and facilitate the creation of new spin-outs at TUM.
