Companies want to innovate through “inclusive products and services”. The main question is “How to start” and “Where to start”.
It’s not about the market, it is about the people.
I will answer these questions in my new lecture, happening in SP, Brazil.
This very demanded lecture is available in Spanish and English.
Let me know if your University or business might be interested.

When I became paralyzed at the age of 15, I learned to live by hacking. Can’t walk anymore? Hack ambulation with a wheelchair.
15 or so years later, I live more or less independently. I drive my own car and I live in a house. I even dress and feed myself. But I still rely on hacks every day. To drive my own car, it needed to be hacked with hand controls. To live in a house, it needed to be hacked with ramps. And when hacks don’t work, I have to absolutely and completely rely on the kindness of strangers. I don’t know if you’ve met many strangers, but I wouldn’t say they’re all kind.
