Design + Startup with IDEO & First Round Capital
Thursday, February 16, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Design is a trending topic across the start-up industry and designers are playing a critical role in the company creation process. Founders want it, engineers want to do it, UX gurus are growing exponentially on LinkedIn and even venture capitalists know the difference between Fireworks and Photoshop.
In an ongoing effort to support the entrepreneurial ecosystem in New York City, First Round Capital and IDEO are partnering to a host a series of focused and practical discussions on how to unleash the power of design for startups and entrepreneurship. The first session will focus on the challenges of designing for consumer engagement online, offline and in mobile environments.
The Design + Start-Up series is focused on the practice of design in the start-up industry. These talks will be lead by practitioners with the goal of presenting a specific point of view and sharing tactical, actionable advice for designers and entrepreneurs leading design driven companies.
