DESIGN + ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Design thinking has gained widespread popularity in the entrepreneurial world, and a rising current of entrepreneurially-minded designers who initiate and deploy their skills to hack social systems, business design, cities, infrastructure, hardware and software-based systems.
At this session we will examine the powerful dynamic between design and entrepreneurship. Can lean methodologies be applicable for large-scale design projects through radical collaborations, prototyping and system disruptions? What new perspective can designers offer to re-work traditional business models and reinvent “lean” methodologies from a creative vantage point?
