Here are some photos from our recent pop up studio in Manila. We spent 3 weeks, mid typhoon running ethnography in 7 cities, learning about the role of insurance and how we can design better solutions for the economically challenged to help them secure their future
We're often asked for book recommendations. So here's one that I'm currently reading and loving. Founders at Work is a collection of interviews with founders - from PayPal to Apple, and Flickr to gmail, Jessica Livingston gets some super insightful stories about the journeys and struggles. I'm especially enjoying this because at Heist, we're constantly re-iterating our own offerings and learning how to scale. Running a start up can be scary, lonely and frustrating sometimes. These essays help you understand that almost every founder asks themselves the same questions, figures out a way to take risks and at some level, operates based on instinct. So if you're thinking of setting up your own company, or figuring how to build on from your own MVP, get this book.
Read a chapter over coffee every other day, walk away inspired each time!
Heist is thrilled to partner with the global Geek Girls movement here in Singapore.
We will be running a workshop on ethnography hacks and design sprints 6th June at Lattice 80 in Singapore.
Design sprints 101 will show you how to address critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers in record time.
While all of our events are open to both men and women, spaces for this workshop are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis to the fastest ladies.
Tickets are available here - come join us!
