5 Successful Hacks to Power Your UX (User Experience)
Earlier this year we teamed up with Kineret Karin, Yoav Elgrichi, and Narith Phadungchai, the inspiringly accomplished team behind Impactech, to support the launch of their amazingly successful social tech accelerator here in Thailand.
5 Successful Hacks to Power the Future of Your UX
A couple of weeks ago we were privileged by being invited to deliver the weekly educational session for Impactech Thailand.
The topic we presented was foundations of UX, and the core questions we were asked to answer were:
- What is UX? Isn’t it just common sense?
- Can’t I just hire a visual designer to make things nice?
- What are User Centred Design practices?
- How do we go about adopting a contextual design mentality?
- How are features prioritized?
To answers these important questions, and more besides, we came up with an easy to follow practical workshop – “5 Successful Hacks to Power the Future of Your UX” – Feel free to enjoy, download, and share.
Acceleration at Impactech
We’ve been working with the Impactech team for a few months, during which we helped recruit a power team of local and regional mentors to support the Thailand launch. The first cohort kicked off in Bangkok with a stellar team of startups early last month.
Impactech’s accelerator program supports participants in two primary ways:
- Weekly study session dedicated to topics startup entrepreneurs need to master – The sessions are provided by carefully selected guest lecturers who are all established experts in their fields.
- One-on-one meetings with assigned mentors – Mentors are established entrepreneurs with a proven track record. Their role is providing participants with insights, support and guidance with whatever questions and issues the startups may be facing.
Why Impactech Thailand?
We see our contributions to Impactech as a chance to give back to the community.
Personally I feel this is one small way to show my appreciation for my new adopted home, and I’m deeply grateful to have this opportunity to share the knowledge we’ve accumulated over the years in a way that benefits and supports truly deserving Thai startups that are actively pursuing a better future in the kingdom – What cause could be worthier?
