create a better future.
Hi, my name is Kaio and I work in partnership with NGOs, private companies and government agencies to imagine bold innovation opportunities that combine profit and social impact.
— Looking for Innovation?
I lead innovation projects using a mix of methodologies such as Design Thinking, Design Sprint, Service Design and Lean Startup to co-create products, services and strategies.
— Want to be digital?
I develop strategies that help organizations understand their customers, find new markets and make their business relevant in the digital world.
— Hacking the Future?
I look for signs of the future, market trends, consumption, behaviors and technologies to help organizations prepare for tomorrow.
— Maybe some stories?
Talks & Workshops
I offer lectures and courses focused on innovation, design thinking, creative process and entrepreneurship for events, universities and private companies.
I've worked with
I have founded an NGO, an advertising agency, a band and a startup, and in my 10 years of experience in the creative industry I had the opportunity to work and meet incredible people and to go through cities like Rio, São Paulo, Mexico City, Los Angeles and Nairobi.
Now I invest my days (and sometimes nights) working in partnership with NGOs, companies and government agencies to imagine ideas and opportunities for innovation that can transform the world through design.
