Hey Designer News,
I'm Ben - one of the founders of Designer Fund along with Enrique Allen. Over the past few years we've invested in startups co-founded by designers through our seed fund, helped build and develop design teams through Bridge and organized community events to help designers share best practices.
Before Designer Fund I was a designer and design manager at Facebook for almost 6 years where I helped build things like the Facebook Platform, the communication design team, and a lot of new user onboarding/education. I have also worked in-house at CBS and as a designer and design manager at design/development agencies.
Currently I think a lot about how we get better designed products and services into the world and happy to discuss design entrepreneurship, design education, or anything else that interests you all so thanks for having me!
I'll begin answering questions Thursday, October 1 at 11:00am PST
