Learning to Risk. Risking to Learn.

Published on Mar 16, 2013

Two years ago, Victor became curious about learning practical ways to improve the world. After researching business schools, he decided the options didn’t fit, so he created his own format of 12 experiences in 12 months, centered around design, business and social change. The project developed into a small community of amazing people taking risks to create change in their own lives and communities. @VictorSaad

being in those spaces are what taught me…

what risk would you take to change the world?

absolutely love 17:45 – city as school

partnering for 5 weeks to look into reshaping higher ed – via experience…

You might be wondering how, or why, we’re partnering with the likes of Stanford’s

Ei is a brand new type of school attempting to explore the next frontier within higher education. We’re dreamers, architects, builders…we are students.

The, on the other hand, is established. Their tie to the globally-recognized Stanford name lends them a weighty credibility, creating a swagger in their design steps. They are prestigious; an incubator for the world’s greatest minds.

So, why have they asked us to ideate beneath the vast canopy of their Redwood branches?

Well, for one, we are both incredibly committed to innovation in education. And two, we kinda like each other.


By implementing the design thinking process, they will seek answers for some of the following questions:

  • What ways can we communicate accreditation, recognition, diplomas, and majors?
  • How can undergraduates be more connected to the working world?
  • How can we rethink the resume to include more of our experiences? How should student’s experiences be established, documented, and shared?


imagine a tattoo-like or some wearable.. gathering your days.. cataloging for whatever is needed in the future – for you and for others. best part – you can create it (personal fabrication) and it frees you up to be/see.
