If you run remote design workshops regularly, you know intimately the many pain points of trying to use an all-purpose tool (Zoom, MS Teams, Webex) for the specialized functions that collaborative online sessions call for. Almost any workshop requires switching between four or five tools simultaneously. Energizing participants, moving into and out of breakout rooms, building artifacts together, playing background music — we all have our hacks to make such things possible, but they are clunky at best, and a trainwreck at worst.
A new startup called Butter.us thinks it can do better. Butter — registered in Denmark but boasting a fully remote and global team — is building a product that’s laser-focused on helping workshop facilitators prep, run and debrief their sessions all from one tool. They want facilitators to be able to energize their sessions with ease and put their focus back on what they do best: hosting inspiring and engaging workshops, as smoothly as possible.
On Thursday, July 15, Portland Design Thinkers will welcome Cheska Teresa, Chief Growth Officer for Butter, who’ll talk to us about their mission to empower facilitators to host even better online workshops than in the physical world, and how the Covid pandemic jump-started their plans. We’ll have a chance to play around with Butter — and even more, provide some feedback on cool new concepts that Butter has in development!
