Kaospilot is a hybrid business and design school, a multi-sided education in leadership and entrepreneurship. Our teaching programmes are not designed simply to shape students to fit the future, but to help them create it.

We centre on students’ potential to develop and to achieve – tapping into their creativity, giving it a direction, creating a setting that will get them there and navigate the uncertainties that will follow. We provide space and a place where creatives and potential change-makers can develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and competencies they need to fulfil their values and visions. We build the frameworks within which creative minds can become creative leaders.

Over the years, Kaospilot has worked with hundreds of organisations from South Korea to Chile, South Africa to Canada.


BusinessWeek has recognised Kaospilot as one of the best design schools in the world, and Fast Company has named it in its Startup Leagues Big 10, preparing you for the fast moving startup economy.


Out of more than 600 Kaospilot graduates, one third have gone on to start companies, NGOs and other similar initiatives. Around half hold some sort of management position.


The main areas of focus at Kaospilot are:


  • Education: We exist to educate and to support educational development. Our first focus is our own programmes, through which we foster enterprising leaders, change-makers, creators and responsible entrepreneurs.
  • Consulting: We help companies and organisations use business and organisational innovation to achieve their objectives.
  • Culture: We promote art and artists by hosting shows, happenings, exhibitions.
  • Social: We build communities by using our space for everything from parties to meetings to just hanging out.
