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.
At first I was worried about this project because I have no website experience. I was surprised how easy and user-friendly the Zesty program was. Each time I added or updated a page I was learning more and more about how to manage a website. Overall, this project was one of the best things I did all semester.Kyle Carruthers, Zesty Incubator Student
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.Laudan Yavari, Zesty Incubator Student
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.Max Nova, Zesty Incubator Student
