Welcome to your DESIGN THINKING WEEK 2018 Journey

We realize that, more and more, the success of many companies is not based only on the product or service that they offer, but in the way in which they execute their processes, maintain their relationships, dialogue with their users and involve themselves in the transformation of the society that surrounds them.

Each year and for a whole week, this event explores new possibilities to think and do business in innovative ways. Applying new perspectives and mindsets to existing businesses or creating new opportunities from them.

keep in mind our hashtag #DTW18
