Exploring practical product solutions to social problems using a speed-dating business mentorship format

Do you have a product idea that could help solve a social problem we face?

Do you want to drive change in the world, but are unsure how to move your idea forward? Then this event is for you. Please register for the event on: http://www.marmalade.io/events/speed-dating-product-solutions-to-social-problems/

Triteq, a leading product design consultancy, the Oxford Trust and Oxford Hackspace, an inventors' and makers' community that builds prototypes, are teaming up to bring you a product mentorship event as part of the Marmalade Festival. Everyone is welcome!

Designed like a rotating "speed-dating" event to give idea originators face time with designers, prototype creators, and business mentors, the goal of the event is to help all those start-ups, entrepreneurs and individuals who seek to make the world a better place with a product. Come along to have a chat about your idea, get input into the design process, talk about materials available, prototyping, and small-run options locally, discuss business planning, bounce some ideas off engineers, and generally be pointed in the right direction on all aspects of the product-to-market process.

You might be the reason a critical social or environmental challenge is resolved.

This event may fill up fast, but pre-booking is also available so you don't miss your chance at a consultation. To pre-book a spot on our experts table, please email insya.abdulhussein@triteq.com

We look forward to seeing you!
