This event is part of Philly Tech Week 2014 presented by AT&T.
This is the first of a 2-part Venturef0rth event duathalon all about design and startups. The first: a panel that will blow off your paneling. The second: the return of our infamous Speed Dating for Designers event (4/30).
We’ve compiled an all-star panel to tell you the real deal – what it’s really like to work as a designer in a startup. You’ll hear horror stories, you’ll hear how it was the best choice ever made, and you’ll learn the best practices for designer interaction both from a designer and CEO perspective.
Whether you’re a designer, or you might EVER start a company, come to this. This is good, solid advice, people. Like, for instance, did you know that designers can do more than just make your website look pretty? I know, gasp.
Basically, you’ll get schooled at this event in the best way possible.
The panel includes awesome local startup celebrities including:
- Robert Moore, CEO at RJMetrics
- Kevin Jackson, design director at Artisan Mobile and formerly of Boomi
- Melissa Morris Ivone, designer at Curalate
- Jake Wells, designer at Empathy Lab, formerly co-founder/designer at ElectNext.
5:45 pm for craft brews, 6:15 pm for the panel of your dreams
