Jordan came to me to redesign this website which was not going in the direction he initially wanted. As always, Evolve Graphics strives to make every design clean, professional, and visually pleasing to the eye. Silicon Valley Investors Club is no exception. We wanted it to feature a very clean user interface, the perfect pop of colors, and an overall professional aesthetic that fits the needs of the business, and appeals to it’s target audience.
SVIC is a community of STEM Professionals that have come together to discuss topics related to investment and career decisions with like-minded individuals. Founded by Jordan Thibodeau who has spent over a decade forging relationships with CEOs, authors, and entrepreneurs through his professional work on Google’s Mergers and Acquisitions Team, and Google’s Talks Program – a TED-like series recorded for offices worldwide. Jordan’s also the community manager and creator of the Silicon Valley Investor’s Club (SVIC), which has over 8,500 STEM professionals as its members. SVIC is dedicated to helping STEM professionals make smarter investment and career decisions.
This was, by far, the largest, most intricate, and most feature-rich web design project Evolve Graphics has done. The Silicon Valley Investors Club (SVIC) website has a wide range of different key features and functionality we would like to cover here today.
The website features a very user-friendly dashboard that dynamically changes based on the role of the user. This ensures that only relevant information is displayed to each user and that they can quickly and easily access the important areas of the website that pertain to their particular needs.
Another exciting set of features is the full-blown, interactive community. The website houses the functionality for New Members of the STEM Field to join and discuss related topics amongst the rest of the community. With User Profiles, Direct Messaging, Forums, Social Groups, and a News Feed for the latest activities, there is no doubt that this website is packed with really exciting functionality.
The last thing we are going to cover is the paid courses that SVIC has created. This allows the the company to generate additional revenue for their website, and also benefits the end-users by giving them the opportunity to learn about relevant topics in more detail.
