Design for Startups is an initiative of Shumka Centre for Creative Entrepreneurship at Emily Carr University of Art + Design to connect designers to companies. 

  • 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

This program was piloted in 2013 and has been successfully implemented with 50+ companies to date.

Deadline: 5PM on Friday, June 19, 2020
