ADC Snapshots 💎: Interviewing second batch participants ➡️

❄️ Please introduce yourself:
Over the past 20 years I have gained experience in design in different projects, industries and countries. Recently, I have focused on leading transdisciplinary research and design to nurture holistic innovation and systems thinking to achieve responsible and technological innovation.

❄️ Please introduce your business idea:
The Service Sandbox comprises building blocks representing what service creators should consider when co-creating and promoting service experiences in physical spaces. It allows them to roam and explore services rather than follow a linear path, opening up possibilities across services within users’ daily routines combined with their values.

With Service Sandbox, multidisciplinary experts involved in service concept ideation can better understand how technology fits into different physical environments and discover the right moment to bring digital to space by a systemic understanding of the customer’s needs and how they interact with the space.

❄️ What made you apply to the ADC program?
The possibility to engage with Aalto’s startup community and learn how to become an entrepreneur in Finland and make the Service Sandbox a business.

❄️ Name three things that have been the most valuable to you in the program:
Support from the coaches, tactical and strategic lectures on what consider in your business, meeting other people in similar idea stage and more advanced stage.

❄️ How are you proceeding with your business idea?
Most likely I will one day make it available as a digital tool.

❄️ Greetings to ADC followers:
Becoming an entrepreneur is a solo decision, but you do have support and many opportunities to make it happen. Joining a community is a great step!

ADC Research 🔍: Join the MAGICS-Aalto community event on Thursday 17th of November at 16:00 to learn about the ‘Unruly relations – on art & science practices’.

Tomorrow’s guest speaker is Laura Beloff, Associate Professor at the Department of Art & Media in Aalto University:

💎 The talk will introduce some of the interests of the speaker as an artist and researcher, which often evolve around questions about biology and technology and human evolution. The shared cultural understanding of biological and ‘natural’ are evolving with the development of science, technology and biotechnologies, as well as recently also in the evolving field of art & science. Today, we are experiencing increasing blurring of the categories that divide organisms to biologically evolved or artificially created ones. The divider between these two categories appears to be human culture and activity. The talk will present artistic thinking and questions concerning these issues and beyond.
