At the end of October we spent an evening with some of the Carnegie Mellon School of Design Alumni talking about what we are doing, and asking them about what they think it will need to work well for them.
Air BnB gave us a perfect space to host some deep conversations about what designers do when they startup, and what stops them from doing so at the time when they have few commitments.
They gave us a clear perspective, and a few of them are interested in mentoring others, with all of their hard-earned startup experience. A great turnout. Maybe we should do one in NYC for the Alumni there?
