Past Participants

“Going through the IDEO ideation and design process during Builder’s Day was an eye-opening experience that broadened my understanding of product design. Working alongside IDEO’s world class team provided clarity and lasting value as we build and refine Alto Financial’s core product.”

Andrew Benson, Co-Founder, Alto Financial

“I really did love the IDEO people. They’re obviously the best of the best in terms of design talent. It’s seriously valuable for folks like me to get to spend time with design folks like that, and to learn about their process. I knew user testing was valuable but hadn’t really experienced it before.”

Hart Lambur, CEO & Founder, UMA

“Crypto Builder's Day was a unique chance to learn & improve full-product thinking alongside the best teams in the space.”

Robert Leshner, CEO & Founder, Compound
