CoFoundersLab is an entrepreneurial platform that supports connecting entrepreneurs to each other, building businesses together, and sharing knowledge along the way. As the sole designer, I was responsible for pushing product innovation based on entrepreneurs' latest needs--connect efficiently, share knowledge easily, and incubate ideas with CoFoundersLab’s accelerator. I held many roles during my 2 years at CoFoundersLab while the platform was rapidly expanding. From working on a company merger design strategy to launching a series of initiatives based on entrepreneurs’ real time feedback, I was able to use and develop all my design and business skills in research, design, and development in a varied atmosphere.See it liveCase study
I was responsible for reinventing CoFoundersLab’s initial and only product--the social networking feature--in the beginning. I was laser-focused on how the product could solve the users’ biggest pain points, which was finding a fitting business partner who shared the same business goals but offered an additional skill set. I reinvented the onboarding process and the connecting and interaction process.

By applying a suite of design thinking and methods, she created and enhanced our products as well as user bases. In addition, she demonstrated a strong ability to lead the design direction and create stunning user experiences with quick turn-around, all while taking into account changes and tight timelines.
