I founded a community-centered platform to hire creative college freelancers.

Start-Up. Biz Dev. Marketing Strategy.
Events & Partnerships. Content Creation.

 

CHALLENGE. Creative college students need money and a portfolio but take odd jobs or run errands to get by — rather than aligning their creative skills with paying gigs. Employers seek the support of university career services to hire college students but the latter don’t provide freelance opportunities for creative students.

SOLUTION. A website to bridge the gap between creative college freelancers and employers seeking young, creative & flexible talent. Partnerships with universities and community-building initiatives for students.

PRESS. Forbes. VentureFizz. Business News Daily. Magazine Le Mensuel. Built In Boston. Startup Boston Podcast. El Planeta. Woof Mag. Adjust Your Margins.

AWARDS. BDL Accelerate, Global Top 5 Startup Competition. Global Student Entrepreneur Awards. Emerson College Accelerator.

 
 

4,000+ users and students in 50 universities nationwide.

20+ epic events, sponsored by Under Armour, Red Bull, House of Blues and other major brands.

 
 
 
 

Including a three-day gallery show featuring live art, mixed media, pop-up performances, workshops and a fitness class.
