Our footprint is here to stay.
8-10th of October 2021 in Helsinki. 48 hours, real company challenges, problem solving using design thinking methods.
Dash Design Hackathon is a weekend-long event that brings together students, graduates and professionals from all fields of study, with a unique focus on teaching and using service design processes as the core method for solving real-life cases brought by companies!
Dash Talks is a seminar on the edge of design, business and technology, where industry professionals come together to learn more about design & innovation.
During the event we have keynote speakers sharing their insights on how design and organizational culture have had a huge role in their accomplishments, multiple tracks where you can dive deep into design in practice, and networking with like-minded experts.
In the support of our mission, bringing design thinking closer to everyone, we have created Dash Online - virtually connecting the community of creatives and showcase how the future can be shaped with good design.
The platform gives a voice for creatives where Q&As, podcasts, and webinars will be posted from leading industry experts & innovative university students. We just published our first Dash Online -event, link from hear:
“It was the year 2017, when two students from Aalto University realised a great problem existed.
Businesses and startups kept on growing in Finland but something vital was commonly left out - design.”
