About this event

Be Mine, Amsterdam?

As we desperately long for some warmer weather, we thought we would bring you some hot content that gets your hearts aflutter before Valentine's Day! On 11 February, slip into something more comfortable and snuggle up with us by the fire(side chat) to listen to Scott Tong share his experiences being a part of - and founding - some very well known global companies.

Scott is currently an advisor at the Designer Fund, having previously been a Principal Designer at Ideo, co-founder of automation startup IFTTT, and the Head of Design at Pinterest.

This month, as part of our ongoing commitment to educate, inspire, and connect (and spread the love), we will be talking to Scott about his experiences validating concepts, understanding customers, and why good design is the heart of the foundation for any startup.

Join us on 11 February at 7:00 pm.

Let's make 2021 the year we forget our troubles and make some beautiful music together instead.
