Entrepreneurship from a Design Perspective
with Kim B. Deland
Entrepreneur and Industrial Designer
Adopting a nonconformist perspective, Kim Deland has taken up several entrepreneurial projects as far back as childhood. Her projects have always been excuses to manufacture, test and sell products, try different revenue models, but also immerse herself in authentic situations. Kim realised several years into the process that she has always taken the same path with two approaches, one from the point of view of an entrepreneur to end up with a lucrative business and one from a designer focused on user-centered development. She calls herself a “hyperactive-project-tester”. This conference is the story of her journey through these projects with from both points of view.
Kim graduated as an industrial designer and is a passionate entrepreneur, animated by innovative entrepreneurial projects. She’s owned her own design studio for a year and a half and helps companies, mostly start-ups, develop their products and build their brands. Kim believes in the importance of incorporating the customer journey in all her human-centered designed projects. Kim is a hyperactive-design-strategist. She is now working with collaborators on several startup projects to be launched next year! Many other projects will follow…!
