Product Design Sprints for Social Impact
Sisa Lleses is Captain & Co-founder at Design Off The Boat (http://designofftheboat.com): An all-women product design crew for all women founders dedicated to social impact. Their goal is to accelerate to time-to-impact of tech for good by building smarter with Design Thinking, faster with Design Sprints, and better with No-Code. Sisa runs the borderless agency out of Toronto but her roots are in The Philippines. There, she assisted in creating The Hub of Innovation for Inclusion, a social enterprise incubator in the heart of Manila. This is where she got started on Design Thinking and moved towards becoming a Design Sprint Facilitator. Her team has helped women founders build their social impact startups and communities like The [Feminist Enterprise Commons](https://feministenterprisecommons.mn.co/). She is the UX Lead at [NeedsList](http://needslist.co) (NC Tech Awards "Tech For Good" Winner 2019, Canada's Top 100 Recovery Projects – Future of Good). Staying true to her roots in social good, she now brings her workshops on "How To Build Better MVPs for the SDGs" to incubation spaces and startup competitions like Cooperathon (http://cooperathon.ca) and university-linked accelerators in Canada. More recently, Sisa has joined the Zero To One Makers Club (http://zerotoonemakersclub.webflow.io/) and the On Deck No-Code Fellowship(https://www.beondeck.com/no-code) as one of its founding fellows, and has been accepted into The Fifth Wave Initiative. Design Off The Boat is quietly launching their newsletter: The Capitana's Checklist (http://designofftheboat.com). Currently she is building The Sticky Sitch (http://thestickysitch.com) in public.
