17 Oct Design for Startups
Posted at 23:19h in Business OpportunitiesDesign for Startups is unique program in which student designers join early-stage company teams in order to work on a specific design problem. This program was piloted in Fall 2013 and has been successfully implemented with 35 companies to date. They are currently accepting contact information for companies interested in participating in upcoming rounds. How it Works: You tell us what problem you would like solved. We match you with a designer who has the skills in that area. Student designers join your company team and work closely with you and your stakeholders to find solutions. Student designers meet with other designers weekly in a lab setting, where they are supported by Emily Carr faculty to keep the projects on track. This is not an internship program: it is a design lab that happens in partnership with participating companies and Emily Carr. How to Apply: To participate, please send 2 – 3 lines about your company and briefly describe the design problem, challenge, or product area you would like to address. Please indicate whether you currently have a designer on your company team. Contact Living Labs: firstname.lastname@example.org or 604 630 4573. Deadline November 1, 2017, for the Jan – March 2018 round.
