  • Houdah A.

    Hey great event last night! If there are any developers/designers looking to join a startup I'm currently looking for partners to deal with the tech side of my business so that I can concentrate on the marketing/business development side. I have created an online platform for the security industry to connect and network. The aim is to promote ease of access to jobs and allow firms and businesses to easily search personnel. I have already had the basics designed and developed however I need a total rebrand and there's a lot of development work that needs to be done. It's a huge project with massive potential and I'm looking for designers/developers to come on board get involved and be a part of the company. Please contact me if you think you may be interested!
