Startup Club - Volunteer Initiative
Startup Club was an initiative launched by myself and another colleague, Ben Organ, which engaged the alumni and student bodies at RED Academy. Our intention was to help educate junior tech professionals on how front-end development, UX/UI design and digital marketing all intersect and contribute in a business environment.
Ben and I produced a five-week program which introduced attendees to concepts such as affinity diagrams, business models, the product cycle, rapid prototyping and project management.
As a kick-off for the Startup Club programming, Ben and I organized an exclusive panel event for the local tech community, managing tickets on Eventbrite and promoting the event through owned internal channels. This event featured the founders of four tech companies who shared their stories about entrepreneurship and the startup life.
