The Design Industry Advisory Committee (DIAC) organizes and leads seminars, workshops, networking events and design charrettes. These activities bring stakeholders from different sectors together to collaborate and to explore higher-level opportunities to leverage design and the work of our local design workforce. Their Toronto Pop-Up Design Incubator is a mobile design support program developed to connect SME incubator clients to design talent and design tools to help them achieve strategic business goals. The mobile design incubator brings design methodologies and tools to start-up businesses and demonstrates the use of an Integrated Design Process to help these businesses to improve commercialization outcomes by integrating design into every step in the product and service development process. The program connects entrepreneurs to designers in the six design disciplines: industrial, graphic, interior, fashion design, architecture and landscape architecture.
