Aug 22 @ 7 Design Clinic
This is the first event for the design clinic, so it is a bit of an experiment. We have one designer who will be reviewing some content from one startup. We had done something like this at the Microsoft Accelerator, and it was valuable. We will keep tuning the format until we figure out something that works. If you would like to attend as a designer (ie-providing feedback) or a startup (ie-receiving feedback), please follow up with Swapna Kakarlapudi <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
