Berg CEO Matt Webb shares the thinking that built a design studio relied upon by the likes of Google and Intel, and created the award-winning Little Printer.

At our Leading Business by Design summit, Matt gave us a glimpse at the next chapter of the Berg story - as the firm makes the radical transition from design studio to cloud services provider. With Berg Cloud, his team are now building a platform to power the next generation of internet-connected devices coming soon to your home.

Matt quotes from his business partner, Jack Schulze “Design happens in your hands, not in your mouth” summing up the disruptive thinking and hands-on approach that has defined Berg’s success.

Studio founder, technologist and raised by wild Tamagotchi (so he claims) - watch his story of Berg’s growth and the tale of Little Printer from inception to global phenomenon.
