At INDEX: Design to Improve Life® we believe that in order to create positive impact in the world, great design solutions need to be commercialized. Our Design to Improve Life Investor Day is therefore all about sharing these solutions, gaining support and taking the first steps in bringing these ideas to life.

Our Design to Improve Life Investment program takes the best early stage business cases and entrepreneurial talent from the INDEX:Award Finalist pool and partners them with Boston Consulting Group consultants to develop their business models.

Upon completing the Design Orbit program in collaboration with The Boston Consulting Group and Accelerace, design entrepreneurs then have the opportunity to pitch their businesses to invited investors, impact investors and foundations for capital.

Through facilitating this event, designers are able to gain funding, business guidance and mentorship, and investors can contribute to improving the lives of others through design.
