Sarah, Eren and Adrianna on Lettus Design: Our core belief is that community building starts with the design process. Through our in-person and digital tools, we ease the stakeholder engagement process for public spaces and extract the needs of the community. We streamline the engagement process by making the design process accessible to all stakeholders in order to reach concrete urban design outcomes. We developed our idea and values during a design competition called the Urban Greenhouse Challenge from WUR and have continued with its development and deployment in hopes to see make a lasting impact in communities.
Sarah, Eren and Adrianna on Entrepreneurship: To us, entrepreneurship means taking on creative ideas that are urgently needed to the next step past idea development and into testing and implementation. We find that many ideas become stuck at the conceptual level while have the potential to make an impact to individuals, small communities, and cities. Utilising product development, evaluation, and customer validation, ideas evolve with time so they are in touch with current challenges and are more contextually aware. For this reason the entrepreneurial spirit is needed, were we push past the presented hurdles with interdisciplinary problem solving and communication.
