Want to create a revolutionary product or service? You'll need BOTH design and business
David Aycan and Meghann Dryer from IDEO will be addressing a topic they call “venture design.” From the genesis of the user experience through the intricacies of what makes a business viable, they'll explore —through three case studies— how businesses from corporations to start-ups can use smart entrepreneurial approaches to learn and design their way to market.
