International Development Design Summit

The 2010 International Development Design Summit (IDDS) will take place from 7-30 July at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO, USA. IDDS 2010 will be somewhat different from previous years - whereas past summits focused on creating prototypes, this summit will focus on turning these prototypes into products and getting them into the hands of people who can use them. It is the goal of IDDS 2010 to guide project teams through the process of becoming viable ventures with business plans to disseminate their innovations at scale. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the many challenges of entrepreneurship and technology dissemination for developing markets with a diverse group of people from around the globe.
