New product incubation programme for social & sustainable businesses (by @sidekickstudios)


This is a fabulous initiative from Sidekick Studios. A new approach to designing better public services. An excerpt from their announcement:

Technology. Design. Business. Those are the ingredients we believe are needed to make successful, sustainable, social ventures. So we’re going to smash these disciplines together through an unique product incubation process. Say hello to SS3.

We’ve assembled a team of 8 people, drawn from the world of research, design, technology, social venturing and commerce, and over the course of 3 months they will work together out of our studio in London Bridge to try to launch 3 social startups. Or just as well, fail spectacularly and take the lessons to the next business.

If you’re a social entrepreneur, you should get in touch with them.
