The Designer Fund is an angel fund based in San Francisco that invests in design founders through community, mentorship and funding. Their mission is to invest in designers who create businesses with positive social impact.
Yet we’re still not seeing enough design CEOs, especially in the technology space. Is this because of a lack of role models? Inadequate education and training? Lack of awareness?
The Designer Fund works hard to address all these factors through their book, events, direct mentorship and funding. They’ve got a great system that seems to be cranking out some high quality companies and inspiring designers to take control of their own destiny.
