HOW? WHY? ATTEND!

Cross Industry Event ● Horizontal Business Solutions

We started Design Thinking Forum in 2017.

Why? 

Because we truly believe the design thinking is a pathway to growth, change and innovation.  More than 500 attendees in the last two editions give us the proof we are on the right track. We have evolved as community and we see now Design Thinking on the agenda of more and more Romanian organizations, solving real problems and building better futures for us, all.

In 2019 we are ready for two days of ideas and practice. It’s not only about business. It’s also about our lives and our future. Because design could lead to more good in business and society.

The world is never short of good design.
