Designer Fund Collective is a community of leaders who help startups improve the world through good design. This is a private community for designers, founders, and angels from the Designer Fund portfolio, programs, and select design-centric companies. We meet in-person and virtually to share advice, referrals, investments and job opportunities with each other. We aim to demystify what it takes for founders and designers to produce exceptionally designed products, brands, teams, cultures and businesses.
