Are your products ready for bi-national use? Don't miss this rare and exciting opportunity to embark on a cross national Experience Design event in both San Diego and Tijuana.
This month we work with local startups to test their customer experience for a bi-national audience. Participating startups come from both Tijuana and San Diego with one big question: how might we improve our customer's experience regardless of location? Our partner for this event is Tijuana based MIND Hub.
We will test a basic premise: how truly bi-national is this app? We begin in San Diego, learning and testing assumptions. Then travel to Tijuana to explore opportunities. As we travel, we'll do some guerilla testing with ourselves and our fellow passengers. We'll cross the border together where we'll meet with the crew at MIND Hub to continue the workshop.
