“What does Design for Good really mean?” asks David Moinina Sengeh, president of Global Minimum, Inc., at the 2015 IDSA International Conference in Seattle. The Harvard University/Massachusetts Institute of Technology-trained biomechatonics engineer has developed patented technology in the design of comfortable prosthetic interfaces; won $200,000 to develop microbial fuel cells from the World Bank; and worked on research to create inhalable vaccines. He is a TED Fellow who’s been honored on Forbes 30 under 30 in Technology and Wired.Co.UK’s Smart List. He’s also a fashion designer and an inspirational music artist.
