Thank you for the support David! Look forward to contributing research together and shifting the paradigm about who designers are and what they do in the startup context.

Well said David. You'd might be interested to listen what Dan Szuc recently said at UPA11: "MBAs have had their time; technologists have had their time. Maybe it's time for design people to show leadership. "

Frankly, I see the design leadership as one of the most important areas to improve on for us designers. We are comfortable in the cozy spaces of our studios and design practices, with the courage fading away when it comes to starting and running product companies.

#TheDesignerFund = leadership skills for 21st century designers.
