Empowering students to be a part of the design conversation.

Building a student design community🌈

We drive design conversations among people of different backgrounds in various student communities everywhere.



Connecting the local design industry and product people with students 🛠

The design community has a lot to share. We source bright, innovative designers and members of product teams solving complex problems at technology companies around us. We bring them in, soak in the learnings and make necessary connections.


Illuminating with talks and fireside chats 🔥
