Hyper Island x Startup Weekend


Last weekend I had a great time mentoring the brilliant teams of startup weekend x hyper island.It highlited to me something that is so dear to my understanding of the potential of collaborative design work, and what happens when strangers come together to co-create. The interactive process of startup weekend is a brilliant way to quickly prototype new products and services in 48H, and the hyper island design process [thinking and doing] complements it very well. I would like to learn more and explore the tools and methods used.
