DESIGN TRACK

Design Thinking for Startups

The Design Track teaches both entrepreneurs and designers how to apply new perspectives of thinking to their business. Good design is good for business and great for users. By using UX storytelling techniques and leveraging the design process, you can accelerate design thinking and build products that users love.


Great design can make or break your company. Wildly successful companies like Apple and AirBnb understand this and weave great design into the heart of their products. Thankfully, good design is accessible to any company that is willing to apply a human-centered approach to building products and services.

Join us for a week full of in-depth sessions and workshops where you’ll learn how a great design process can improve your startup success.
