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.
Working with Zesty gave me the opportunity to work in the developing of a website for a real life client, which increased my knowledge of the different steps that are needed to do a website, but above everything else gave me the opportunity to listen to the client and apply her view to my work. Thank you Zesty for this opportunity.Gabriela Bojorquez, Zesty Incubator Student
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
It was a very enjoyable experience and I learned skills that I feel will be very helpful to me when I go into the work world. This was not just another assignment that was given in class but one that will be something I can add to my resume.Lauren Gagard, Zesty Incubator Student
