Mix & Stir: A Startup Studio is hosting a series of events this spring at CCA focused on helping entrepreneurs solve the biggest challenge most startups face: growing user adoption as fast as possible.

Join us for Growth Hack: Office Hours with a Behavioral Scientist, a Design Guru, and a Data Scientist, which will feature a panel of world-class minds, including a Stanford behavioral scientist, a user experience guru, and a big-data scientist, who will listen to real-world growth challenges from selected startups and provide insight on using best practices to speed growth.

The Panel

  • Stephen Kosslyn, Director, Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University
  • Maria Guidice, CEO and founder of Hot Studio
  • Rishab Aiyer Ghosh, Chief Scientist and cofounder of Topsy
  • Hiroshi Wald (moderator), Managing Director, Austral Capital Partners, US

Bonus: There is also an opportunity for selected startups to present themselves to the panel. See Registration info »

Touring the Social Imaginary

CATALYSTRANSIT is a project organized by Ana Labastida, circulating through the Bay Area’s Casual Carpool from Fruitvale Avenue in Oakland to Fremont Street in San Francisco, that questions how we interpret the mundane moments during commutes.

To participate, or for more information, visit

This project is part of Touring the Social Imaginary, a series of exhibitions and participatory, public programs across the Bay Area organized by PLAySPACE, that map the social imaginary using research-intensive processes to ask questions about places and the people that inhabit them.
