Meetup of local designers, inventors, innovators and social entrepreneurs who are intrested in the design, development and distribution or products for the benefit of the Other 90% -- that's about 5.85 billion people -- that's a market. This group is sponsored by Designfluence, a nonprofit aggregator of designers and resources, and is open to collaborative relationships with like groups and individuals. More about Designfluence on our website. We've decided NOT to have membership dues or meeting fees. However, there is an expense for Meetup, costs for food and drink, and a need for funding timely Designfluence projects. Please make a donation of whatever you can afford at . Our first goal is $300+ to work on the backend IT of the GiveBankā„¢ pro bono site. Thank you!
