Please join us for the formal presentations of the work completed by Emily Carr design students through the Design for Startups program. Each designer will give a 5-minute presentation summarizing the work they concluded with the participating Canadian startup companies.

All Welcome!

Between September and December 2023, nine student designers worked directly with the technical and business leads of eight Canadian companies to explore and develop a new methodology for connecting design to Internet startups. Designers considered existing design gaps, perform user interface/usability studies, and develop design strategies for the companies in residence.


We will hear presentations from the following designers:

Joshita (Jo) Nagaraj and Jocelyn Qiao paired with A&K Robotics, Diego Hernandez paired with Adwow, Sadaf Asl Soleimani paired with Analytic Labs, Lody Gwon paired with Appara, Neha Adinamozhi paired with Minivillage, Liyang Zha paired with Panevo, Violet Zhang paired with TickitHealth, and Faizaan Siddiqui paired with Withe.
