Forward Faster by Design


Join our monthly innovation event in Charlotte

Forward Faster is a monthly event series in which we explore how Human-Centered Design can fuel business, civic, and social innovation. The one-hour sessions are typically a mix of brief presentations and/or discussions with innovation practitioners followed by small group conversations. Now in its fifth year, Forward Faster has morphed into a virtual forum where people from a wide variety of backgrounds "collide and connect" with others who share an interest in creativity, innovation, and design. If this sounds like your kind of tribe, make plans to join us at an upcoming event.

The Forward Faster by Design series is currently on pause as we consider how best to move forward as we emerge from the pandemic. Stay tuned for developments and announcements about what's ahead!
