Provide knowledge to practice Design Thinking to create user-centric products that solve real-world problems in the real world

About this event

Join us on 24 August 2022, between 2PM - 5PM, to learn about Design Thinking and how to apply it to your business. Design Thinking is a systematic process of thinking which empowers even the most traditional thinkers to develop new, innovative solutions to solve the problem at hand. Design thinking is human-centred creativity with purpose, where the problem-solvers dive into the core of the problem, and solve it with the user/customer in mind.


  • Introduce yourself to a new approach, design thinking, that enhances innovation activities in terms of market impact, value creation, and speed through a systematic process of thinking utilizing user centric approach.
  • Expand your thoughts about design and innovation beyond the design and development of new products to other fundamental sources of value creation by diving into the core of the problem.
  • Strengthen your collaborative capabilities to identify customer needs, create sound concept hypotheses, collect appropriate data, and develop a prototype that allows for meaningful feedback in a real-world environment.
  • Learn to translate broadly defined opportunities into actionable innovation possibilities and recommendations for client organizations.

This session is a joint event by FWD Startup Studio and 1337 Ventures to both introduce participants to FWD Startup Studio and the Design Thinking Methodology. Through this short webinar, participants will be able to learn how they can leverage off Design Thinking and apply for FWD Startup Studio’s programmes to kickstart their journey of launching a Fintech startup in Malaysia. Interested to learn more? Join us on the 23rd of March!
