WHAT IS AMERICA BY DESIGN?America by Design aims to tell the stories behind modern innovations that are changing our daily lives, interviewing inventors about the keys to their impactful designs. Discussions usually cover a range of topics, from the story of the initial inspiration behind each innovation, to the trials and tribulations of turning a great idea into a great product, through the journey of getting an invention to market, and then scaling your business with success.
The show has also led to two spin-offs: New York by Design and California by Design, which focus on booming local innovation in each state. Catch up on episodes and segments from all three shows on the America by Design YouTube channel here.
America by Design partners with several companies to offer various design competitions, including Salesforce, IBM, Siemens and Deloitte. Each of these competitions’ winners will be awarded in the season finale episode of the show. Love your ZOKU frozen treat maker?
