The Determined is a design collective bringing a punk rock approach to social innovation. We facilitate innovative design processes with entrepreneurs and teams doing social good. My co-founder and I are building the curriculum, marketing collateral, content strategy, and social media to promote and launch our services.
September 2015 – March 2016
I did a fellowship with Tom Chi and the Academy team at FactoryX, a venture foundry with a unique take on entrepreneurship, employment, and product innovation process. The Academy team teaches these unique product innovation processes to startup teams, and I'm helping them take that training to a broader audience through 1:1 coaching and the development of an online course.
