The Caterpillar Foundation

The Caterpillar Foundation works to alleviate poverty and create a world of shared prosperity through collaborative action and purposeful partnerships. Since 1952, the Foundation has invested more than $715 million in organizations and programs geared towards sustainable progress for all. Through its collaborative impact platform, Together.Stronger.™, the Foundation focuses on uniting business, non-profits, governments, and citizens to combine their strengths for greater, lasting impact. Join the Caterpillar Foundation and its partners to explore the issues that contribute to poverty and see the work being done to advance its mission to help 50 million people rise out of poverty by 2020.

Abstract is the design workflow management platform that empowers product design teams and stakeholders to seamlessly manage, version, and collaborate on design files. With Abstract, teams can version design files, present work, request reviews, collect feedback, and give developers direct access to design specs — all from one place. Stop by their booth to learn more about how Abstract can improve your team’s workflow. They’ll be giving personal demos, hosting daily giveaways, recruiting for open roles, and looking for people who want to help us create a legacy of open design. Follow Abstract on Twitter.
