Special Guest Speaker, Nate Bolt, will present "How Design Research Impacts our World" at the Lunch and Learn on March 10 at Noon in Jabs Hall 207.
Bolt is the founder and CEO of Ethn.io, a Los Angeles based startup that helps companies recruit the best possible participants for user research from within their app, site, or around the internet. The startup has helped customers such as AirBnB, Netflix, Adobe, and the Federal government better understand their users at critical moments for evaluating the effectiveness of a digital experience. With over 302 million users screened and 1.5 million responses, the startup has cracked an efficient way for companies to recruit and test experiences with a just in time method that supports agile software development sprints.
Prior to leading Ethn.io, Nate was formerly a design research manager at Facebook and Instagram where he led interdisciplinary teams around the art and science of building better experiences for users across desktop and mobile. Nate’s path to Facebook came about from his work as the CEO of Bolt | Peters, which was acquired by Facebook in 2012. He was an adjunct professor at the SVA Interaction Design graduate program and mentored for the CCA Design Strategy MBA degree. He also co-authored Remote Research and co-founded the 1197 conference.
Mr. Bolt will be speaking on his personal experiences of building startups and the power of using design research to better impact our world with examples ranging from food stamps to Facebook itself. Attendees can expect a humorous and enlightening presentation with ample time for questions and answers at the end.
