Maximise Designer Impact in Startups by Youlanda Kuo, Product Design Lead @ Funding Societites

As a designer, we all know design is powerful, but it’s not always easy to use this power to maximise the impact, especially in an agile startup environment. In this session, Youlanda will be sharing how product designers can maximise their impact in a startup environment and also the challenges a designer might face, including: Prioritising, setting goals, making design decision and how to measure success.

Agile Design Research for Startups by Diona Lin, Senior Product Dsigner @ Carousell

Designers are problem solvers. But how do you know you’re driving products in the right direction? How to do research and validate your solution with minimal time available in the startup environment?
Diona will share her knowledge in design research to discover the right problems, drive design decisions, and even guide product teams to form their roadmap.

Q&A and Dialogue!
