Grounded in a holistic approach, we have usurped corporate R&D by using venture design to identify, create, and launch products, brands, services, spaces, and experiences that create new opportunities for growth. This has led to new businesses and brands for our corporate partners like MassMutual’s Society of Grownups, the groundbreaking citizen-centered new digital home for Boston.gov, and disruptive startups like PillPack and Transatomic Power.

Conveniently located between Harvard and MIT, a renowned innovation hub, our studio is continuously experimenting with how to bring the best entrepreneurial, academic and creative minds together to tackle large, complex challenges—as in the future of energy or food with IDEO's CoLab, or our partnership with the Berklee College of Music and Boston Conservatory at Berklee on the Open Music Initiative, or our close partnerships with the MIT Media Lab and the Harvard iLab.

We’re powered by a unique blend of geeks, technologists, craftsman, artists, brand strategists, business designers, design fiction creators, psychologists, design researchers, and digital alchemists—all unified by a shared spirit and purpose: to design for disruptive impact. Let’s invent the future together!

IDEO Cambridge is located in Central Square—between MIT and Harvard.
