Domus Academy / Kickstarter

Students from all corners of the world celebrated completing Entrepreneurship in Design 2018 at Domus Academy, an intensive course in industrial design entrepreneurship featuring Kickstarter. 


These talented, dedicated, smart and innovative students came up with many interesting and creative products that we all agreed had the potential to become successful in the marketplace.


This is the third program we have created with Domus Academy and Kickstarter. It's a lot of work for all of us - especially the students - but it is a true labor of love. I genuinely enjoy teaching these courses and providing direction and opportunity to young designers. 


Kudos to: Heather Corcoran from Kickstarter for providing insight and support for this great teaching platform and to Francesco Sorrentino, Mara Ribone, and Steffen Kaz whom each contributed their time, talent and effort throughout the course.
