500 Startups Launches India Based Design Program

Pankaj Jain

December 07, 2015

At 500, we believe that the best startups are powered by products with quality design. There is a growing appetite in the Indian startup scene to implement great design, yet there are few platforms that teach how. That’s why today, we are excited to launch the 500 Design Program in India.

About the 500 Design Program

A common misconception is that quality design is time consuming, pricey and hard to achieve. At 500, we don’t think it has to be this way.

The 500 Design Program in India is built on our knowledge of working with a wide range of companies on their design challenges, and is crafted specifically for startups. We will work directly with founders through boot camps, workshops, and events geared towards teaching proper and functional integration of creative design.

Design Quicky workshop in Delhi on December 17th.

What is a Design Quicky?

A Design Quicky is an intense half-day boot camp geared to help founders understand design techniques, methods, processes and concepts. We will cover basic foundational design topics that teach how to think about design for products, how to make effective design decisions, and more importantly, how to make design work! The 500 team will be supported by design experts, giving you the opportunity to learn hacks, tricks and techniques first-hand.
