For the last ten months, we’ve been honored to help the Stanford Center on Longevity promote and launch its annual Design Challenge. Created to encourage students from around the world to design new products to enhance a long and happy life, the Center recently announced the winners of 2015-2016 Challenge, which was featured on National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition. To assist with the Challenge, we managed SCL’s social media channels including its Facebook page, helped last year’s winners write about their design on PSFK, expanded the Challenge’s roster of expert industry judges, conducted outreach to the press, and arranged for the finalists to visit the nearby Google campus. It was exciting and inspiring to attend the final pitch session at Stanford earlier this month, and we were impressed that the finalists pitched their designs better than many startup CEOs pitch their companies.

Read about all the Challenge finalists on the Stanford Center on Longevity’s site. Like them, we expect and hope many of them will go on to become real products and services which benefit us all.
