We have worked on 6 events. The World Design Capital has now moved for 2016.
WDC 405 - General Introduction
We have been placed on the official WDC2014 (World Design Capital #WDC405) program a number of mini-events for local companies to showcase their solutions.
Each of these mini-events is 2 hours long, but can be extended. The form of each mini-event is open.
We are requesting you and your team to apply your creative minds and design thinking to use the opportunity, by engaging a topic from the list below with your collaborators and perhaps competitors to "make the pie bigger" .
The 6 mini-events correspond to the WDC "clusters", and are
