Building an online platform from the scratch turns out to be a challenging, rewarding and above all team-building activity, as we’ve come to learn these past months!
Since we have had many phases in this project when we had to learn along the way and somehow let ourselves follow platform’s flow instead of simply executing previously planned steps, Add+venture process seriously threatens to raise the working standards in Impact Hub Belgrade altogether! It will certainly answer a few questions related to the way we plan and manage creative process. Ever-changing digital landscape opens and almost requires that we come up with new approaches, fresh inspiration and even learning strategies and habits. Since we feel that these findings could be very valuable to those who ponder the digital universe and it’s possibilities, we’ll write more on this subject in months to come!
And now, without further ado, here are the creators of Add+venture! /from left to right/
Gaia Montelaticci, platform content expert
The networking is dedicated to people’s diversity. As an anthropologist with M.A. from Arizona State University, I connect multi sectoral practices with unlikely expectations, and that is what moves me as a maker of Impact Hub in Belgrade. I am also often engaged as a EU programming consultant for social inclusion, entrepreneurship, and employability of youth. The link between anthropology, and the people driven business strengthens the cultural diversity and that is what grows our Impact Hub community in Belgrade.

Milos Mitrovic, platform visual identity and user experience designer
Milos has a masters degree in architecture and is currently developing his skills as a UI/UX designer and animator.

His main concern is to provide a pleasurable learning experience for all users on the Add+Venture platform.
