Valegro is proud to work with, and have developed the website for, StartupSmart.
Trusted from the outset, as a result of long term client relations with Crikey.com.au and SmartCompany, Valegro was ready to jump at the opportunity work with the team to produce the exciting start up, which reports on and delivers information to start up’s.
StartupSmart describes itself as “ a free news and information website for Australian start-ups and people thinking of starting their own business. “
StartupSmart is the brainchild of entrepreneur Amanda Gome, founder of SmartCompany and CEO of Private Media.
“When I was setting up my business, I often felt very alone and isolated. There was no daily publication to read, no site to help and no community to join. I knew from both researching start-ups and fast growing companies for more than 20 years, that the year setting up the business and the first few years of operations are the hardest for most entrepreneurs.”
“When I started my business, I found mornings the hardest: opening my laptop and often wondering what the hell I was doing. That is why we are also creating a daily email that arrives around 8.30am every day so when you start your day, you start with us, you start with our mentors, our advise, our warnings… you start your day smart!”
As Valegro is also a small to medium business we found the experience to be truly rewarding and are very pleased that StartupSmart has been happy with the launch and site layout.
Valegro worked with StartupSmart on all aspects of their website to ensure timely delivery and client satisfaction. Specifically, Valegro helped, developed and worked with StartupSmart with infrastructure and data flows, database options, platform and widget integration, custom coding, publishing tools, category and archive development, CMS, wireframing, hosting and ongoing on-demand client support and development.
Valegro CEO Pieter Coetzee said about the project “We were delighted to work with StartupSmart, and found the entire process very fluid, positive and fun.” Regarding the challenges of the project Pieter explained “Nothing is ever a problem, but there are challenges that range from doing something that’s never been done before, to coming up with solutions. When the client knows where they are and where they want to get to, my team and I really enjoy ourselves because it gives us the opportunity to be very creative, and delight the client”.
