The Creative Startups team needed an on-boarding and e-learning platform to centralize the setup and operations of their accelerator program.
Creative Startups drives the creative economy and creative entrepreneurs around the world, including licensing accelerators in the United States, Middle East, and Asia, along with strategic initiatives to develop the broader entrepreneur ecosystem via pre-accelerator programs, workshops, training, and seminars.
I’ve served them as a creative business mentor, during the accelerator program week in Albuquerque, NM in 2015 and 2017.

PROJECT CHALLENGES & KEY REQUIREMENTS FOR THE CREATIVE STARTUPS PLATFORM
- Leverage pre-existing technology and creative assets to save costs
- Multi-user, multi-tenant user platform
- Curriculum content management system
- Clean and simple UI
Alongside the project manager I developed the user experience for platform. After client interviews I created the complete wireframe set, planned technical feasibility with the development team, evolved the UX through client meetings, sourced the Bootstrap theme to speed development, and designed UI updates to said theme. Once the design was complete I co-managed the technical development and product launch.
Four years later in 2020, Creative Startups has led successful accelerators in the US, Kuwait, Malaysia, Portugal and are currently launching content on the platform in order to reach wider audiences through the Labs, and Libraries as Launchpads programs.
