‘Responsible Design’ led entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial ventures
Responsible Design pays special attention to the “human-centered” approach to shaping new businesses, conceptualizing meaningful innovation and undertaking a venture journey that forever has empathy and responsibility at the center of critical decisions.
In summary, ventures embracing attributes and values of “design thinking” will be recognized and rewarded.
Design Thinking has three lenses through which a designer attempts to seek a good solution- ‘Desirability’, ‘Feasibility’ and ‘Viability’. The jury seeks to find how ventures balance business imperatives with technological feasibility, along with human needs and desires. Thereby having a social impact on people. The sweet spot at the intersection of ‘Desirability’, ‘Feasibility’ and ‘Viability’ is value innovation which is rare and is worth rewarding and recognizing.
Together, we design a better future.
TiE and QGLUE (the design venture of QAI) announce Design Led Entrepreneurship Awards 2019 that recognize entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial ventures driven by ‘Responsible Design’.
Post the evaluation process, selected candidates will pitch their proposals at TiE Global Summit and the winners will be recognized at the conference and their work will be highlighted. Further, exclusive design mentoring sessions from acclaimed Mentors will be given to the winners, post the event.
