Hands on: Build a website / online store for your business
28.10.2020 klo: 17:00 – 20:00
A practical workshop to get you started with a website or an online store to your company.
If your company isn’t online, it doesn’t exist. There are many low cost programs and digital platforms allowing small business owners to create their own websites and online stores easily by themselves. Even if you’ll outsource the coding and design work to someone else, as a business owner you need to understand the process of developing good digital services for your company.
This workshop will help you to understand what you need to take into consideration when building up your first online service or developing an existing one to deliver useful, customer friendly, effective and attractive site/service that meets the expectations and needs of both your customers and your company.
In addition to practical exercises, the workshop hosts Hesam Pakbeen & Felipe Gasnier will share tips and advice from their fields of expertise to get you started with your digital service.
Hesam Pakbeen is a passionate designer specialised in UX and service design with over 15 years of diverse experience from product design, information technology, and sustainability to hospitality industry.
Felipe Gasnier is a designer specialised in advertising, web design and e-commerce. Felipe has 16 years of experience as a co-founder and CEO of four companies in his country of origin Brazil including e.g. a book publishing company with an online store.
The workshop is for immigrant entrepreneurs or soon-to-be. The workshop is organized by Startup Refugees supporting newcomers in finding work and start a business in Finland in partnership with NewCo Helsinki.
