Wednesday, June 26, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
All proceeds from ticket donations go to covering expenses to produce SF Design Week, a non-profit event, and other cool events like it.
Designer as Founder, presented by AIGA San Francisco in collaboration with PARISOMA, is a series of conversations with successful designers-turned-founders. The series kicks off this April where we welcome Rob Forbes of Public Bikes and Design Within Reach. We'll hear stories, challenges and triumphs about his leap from the role of designer on a creative team to a founding role in creating a new business like no other.
Now more than ever, designers are being asked to take on the role of thought leader, technologist and creator of new innovative products. The goal of this series is to have a concrete conversation about what it takes to make ideas happen in this new environment. Join us for an action-oriented discussion with moderator Philip Wood and some of the most inspiring designer founders in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Doors Open: 6:00 PM
Networking: 6:00 to 6:30 PM
Discussion: 6:30 to 7:30 PM with Q&A until 8pm
