About the Author: 

Kristin Low is a Design Entrepreneur who enjoys operating at the nexus of emerging markets and emerging technologies. Kristin has designed, founded, built and sold multiple businesses across Asia, and believes passionately in the power of Design Thinking as a tool to effect massive change. 

Kristin moved to Hong Kong in 2012 to begin applying Design across the region, and within a week of arriving founded the Design Thinking Asia network as a mechanism to identify and develop Design Thinking practitioners, who, in his view are essential to the development of the region socially and economically. Kristin has since had the opportunity to apply Design Thinking, and the associated practices of User Experience Design & Service Design, in nearly every country in Asia. 

Currently a partner at Brinc, one of the world's leading Internet of Things Accelerators, Kristin helps startups, large organisations and governments use Design to make sense of their connected future, ensuring that positive human outcomes are designed, not just engineered.    

Kristin also actively engages in venture building around opportunities that match his thesis around connected services in traditional verticals as being the primary disruptor for economies in Asia.
