When we founded the community in March 2019, we didn't know exactly how far it would go, but when the pandemic arrived in mid-April 2020, the expectation was that we would not be able to go much further. However, the numbers show a very different reality. In a year which the protagonism, collaboration and adaptability to change spoke louder, Design at Business delivered great results that will now be shared with you.
The generosity of those who contributed to the community and the willingness to learn from all members who joined us were essential to keep this community alive.
This is for you, for your company, and for our country. We hope to contribute even more in 2021.
