Pitch Night | Creating a Design Startup
Written by cemre
Join us on December 10 for Pitch Night, where students will present the companies they have been developing in the Creating a Design Startup course.

520 East 1st Ave.
Creating a Design Startup equips designers with the tools and methods to create their own startups. Students learn how to develop and evaluate product/service concepts, establish a rapid iterative prototyping process and use the human-centered design process to create and test minimum viable versions of their products and initiatives.
With support from the Discovery Foundation and Scotiabank, the course was augmented by the Art, Design, Business Speaker Series, which brought six public guest lectures from entrepreneurs, designers and tech pioneers who’ve put together wildly successful startups, worked with top companies, and developed new and incredible products and business models. These lectures were followed by hands-on workshops, which gave the students the opportunity to apply their knowledge to their own projects. Guests and topics included:
Paulina Cameron, Director, Futurpreneur: Funding
