Can Design-Thinking Make You a Better Scientist & Entrepreneur?

Robert Urstein, PhD
Co-Founder, Alta Learning, Entangled Labs

What is HUMAN-CENTERED DESIGN and how can it help you build more awesome products and businesses? Why is EXPERIMENTATION AND PROTOTYPING about more than scientific or market validation? How can they become integral parts of your innovation process and help you forge ahead when you feel stuck? When can DOING AND MAKING be more powerful than thinking and meeting?

Join us for this interactive workshop to answer these questions and more. You will leave knowing how to:

  • Use tools developed from human-centered design theory to strengthen the work you do in science and business as you create awesome products and companies
  • Work collaboratively to build teams that accomplish amazing things together
  • Communicate more effectively with colleagues and investors for maximum impact
  • Identify new approaches to solving hard problems when you get stuck
