Launchpad

Launchpad

Laboratory. Workshop. Innovation engine.

Launchpad is exploring the edges of design for social innovation. It’s where we push hard and fast to understand where business and technology can meet the demands of poverty. Launchpad is where we experiment, where we figure out what’s next, and where we should be placing big bets. It’s the bleeding edge of our design practice here at IDEO.org and gives us a place to continuously question and explore how design can improve lives in the most impactful way. We’re designing for the future and we’re not slowing down.

Launchpad is a testing ground for design excellence and craft, and it serves as a forum for us to explore new ways of partnering and designing for impact. We work with organizations like the American Refugee Committee, Proximity Designs, and Unilever, and we want partners who are excited to bring cutting edge design and business thinking to sectors as diverse as health care, agriculture, and clean water and sanitation.
