Design for Startups at Emily Carr

- Date Summer 2016
Design for Startups (D4S) is unique program in which student designers join early-stage company teams in order to work on a specific design problem. D4S support creative projects, social venture and entrepreneurship driven by art and design; build projects and partnership models that use art and design as a mechanism for innovation and community building; and connect with organizations to develop externally facing, embedded, adaptive design labs that take a form suitable to the structure and culture of organizations and the nature of the design problems to be addressed.
The toolkit is available for wide-spread use by educational institutions, companies and a variety of organizations. The model is flexible and can be adapted to suit different contexts, disciplines, and industries.
