)-- “We do firmly believe that startups have to help each other,” states Ralph del Valle, 12designer’s CCO, to unveil their brand new collaboration with Startup Weekend London, which will take place from 9th to 11th of September. “As a startup, we all take risks every day, in every single decision, and we thought that the best way we can help them is by showing them how important a well-thought naming strategy or an impressive logo design is, and of course, by giving them a little hand to make sure they are able to reach professional design and communication.”
Under these premises, 12designer offers for all entrepreneurs attending to Startup Weekend London a 100% discount in their publishing fee for their new creative contest. No matter if they need a brand new name for the company they’re about to establish, a logo design or a corporate identity: 12designer allows them to reach exceptionally with no publishing costs a wide creative range of almost 16,000 European designers.
This collaboration is just the last one from a successful row of partnerships established all across Europe with other Startup Weekends within the last months, such as Barcelona, Berlin, Milan, Madrid or Hamburg, and for those about to come in October, like the Startup Weekend Szczecin, Poland’s rising startup city, and the SMAU fair for business and technological entrepreneurship, which will take place in Milan.
“Startups are new businesses, and that means new ways of finding solutions, a new approach to solve old issues,” points out Del Valle. “12designer ensures the right tool for such dynamic spirits: a platform that offers new rules for getting creativity, without intermediation, taking an active part within the creative process. That’s why entrepreneurs, SMEs and startups always find interesting our working method, because we both strive to open new paths in fields where everything was –theoretically- already written,” concluded.
