The IDEO Startup in Residence program helps early-stage teams embed design thinking into their core DNA as they grow and scale. The startup team lives in an IDEO design studio for a quarter, working to achieve product-market fit. Along the way they’re mentored by IDEO designers and participate in the daily life of the studio. Going forward, they also benefit from being part of the IDEO’s family. All Startup in Residence candidate companies are referred by IDEO’s network of trusted advisors and investors.
