Join Dan Makoski in a conversation about how to create a more open, fast pace innovation culture, foster inspired design, and set the expectation of greatness. As the founder of Google's Project Ara, and the Design Lead on the original Microsoft Surface, Dan is on a mission to thoughtfully design epic experiences in collaboration with the people who inspire us to innovate.

More than 20 years ago, Capital One disrupted the credit card industry when it launched the balance transfer product, which democratized credit for a nation of consumers. Today, the banking industry is still ripe for reinvention, which is why Capital One has embraced open source to capitalize on its rich heritage of data analytics.

Makoski creates breakthrough products by combining his experience in interaction design, executive leadership, and enabling meaningful collaboration between companies and the people who inspire them to innovate. As VP of Design at Capital One, Makoski is initially focusing on breakthrough experiences specifically in mobile commerce and payments.

Previously, Makoski worked for Dr. Regina Dugan (former head of DARPA and now captain of Google’s ATAP: Advanced Technology & Projects), who exclusively hires innovation leaders for fixed two-year terms. He started and guided design for Google’s Project Ara, and led design and research for products including the Moto X, Moto Skip, new RAZR, Mac Office, Microsoft Surface 1.0, Dell Studio Hybrid, Verizon.com, and United.com.
