The Zesty Incubator is a program created to address two problems.  Small business owners often struggle to build their first professional website and hire a marketing team, whether due to finances, time, or logistics.  It also is difficult for marketing and graphic designers to get the necessary hands-on experience to launch their careers. The Zesty Incubator provides a hands-on way for students to incubate their skills working with real clients, while also allowing small businesses the chance to have a marketing and web design team take their business to the next level.

What People are Saying About Our Programs


I think this was a great experience.  Learning how to design and develop a website is a great skill to have.  The experience of working with a real client was a great learning experience because it was more than an academic project.  It was a real life experience.

I thought this was a great opportunity because I've been trying to find a site to make a personal page.  Now, I also have the ability to design a professional page which gives me extra skills for my job application process.  I hope I can continue to work with Variable Action.

When I first found out that we were building websites, I got nervous because it seemed like a very difficult task.  Zesty made it fun!  From the ease of learning how to navigate and use the website to actually building it.  Zesty and the Zesty team made the whole experience great.  Also, the Zesty team was extremely open to our team coming in for help and they really gave us a lot of great advice and help.
