MIT & Design – The Next Zuckerberg Will be a Designer
More than expected design is playing a larger and larger role. Especially when the world is not content with only one Zuckerberg. But where will the next one emerge? From design.
Earlier in 2011 MIT became enamored with the capability of design and design thinking to further push the capability of “new”, R&D and the scientific method into the venture world. Giving quite a bit of detail in Will the Next Zuckerberg Be a Designer, not a Hacker? it was soon followed up by fast Company in Why VC Firms Are Snapping Up Designers and most recently in 2015 how the Star Wars BB8 made it into the world. In cases such as Designing a Real Life BB-8, there is no denial the impact of R&D and Design thinking and how it directly effects bringing the future to the real world.
