Motivation to Design in the Information Tech Startup Community
Originally a small side project and a minor encounter with the community at Philly Startup Weekend, I found the intensity and commitment these people have towards changing the world via technology to be unparalleled. The majority of them are trying to ease human life of problems through technology in a manner that’s economically feasible. This passion is also captivating for a like-minded individual such as myself – it’s also invigorating being amongst people my age that are trying to improve the world, even if incrementally. I was motivated to empower this community by designing tools that may further enable them to learn and succeed.
