We highlight Rafael’s progress throughout the Institute and invite you to explore how the mentors and the structure of the Institute facilitate idea generation, growth, support, and the rapid creation of business models based on local capacity. After months of struggling to define what Uber Shelter stands for as a viable business, Rafael is now designing an innovative business solution to meet the needs of disaster relief and ultimately bettering lives through design.
