Sustainability is a complex word; more than just environmentalism, it also encompasses the roles of social and economic dimensions in delivering long-term prosperity. Hear from business leaders on how they address sustainability in these various dimensions, using design thinking to promote sustainable design of products, environments as well as livelihoods.

This series is a plenary on Sustainability, presented during the design-led segment, Catalysing Innovation with Design, during the TechInnovation 2020 virtual conference. This was held as part of the week-long Singapore Week of Innovation & Technology (SWITCH) and Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF).

Programme/Presentation line-up:

  • Catalyst for Sustainable Impact – Cristina Ventura, Founder, VenturaXVentures
  • Driving Sustainable Innovation with Design & User Insights – Giulio Bonazzi, President and CEO, Aquafil
  • Creating Social Impact with Financial Services Experience Design – Raghu Kolli, Head of Customer Centricity, LeapFrog Investments

This event is organised by IPI Singapore as part of SWITCH.
Key Partner: Enterprise Singapore
Content Partner: DesignSingapore Council
Network Partner: Enterprise Europe Network

This event is also supported by the National Design Centre, and is part of the National Design Centre’s “Sustainability & Design” programme line-up for January 2021.
