Turning Designers into Founders

An interview with Ben Blumenfeld

Ben Blumenfeld


In this interview, Ben Blumenfeld explains the role that design can play in the startup world, and what companies like Airbnb and Path are doing right. He outlines what he learned from working at Facebook and why it's important for designers to solve bigger problems.


"Go after bigger problems. I’d like to see designers think about how they can create better healthcare and help educate the next generation. Find the right partners and tackle more meaningful problems instead of thinking up the next photo sharing app."
