Group 490 (collaborating on product design 4 the other 90 percent) had a small beginning tonight, but interesting and informative for all. And like a small garage startup, we'll work hard for growth and expansion! Okay, maybe we'll just have fun trying. For an introduction to making a difference in the world through product design, there's no better teacher than Kurt Kuhlmann, who sets some harsh guidelines, but is one of the pioneers for doing this business in a sustainable way. We're open to suggestions for speakers and venues, and want to hear from you.
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 GiveBank™ pro bono site. Thank you!
