Creating solutions to real life problems

1MillionStartups is a global platform and community for startups. “Entrepreneurs and startups across the world are creating solutions to real life problems and the grand challenges of our time (and Sustainable Development Goals) to the benefit of us all!”

During my coop at Startaparat, I helped with the event planning and design for the first global conference of 1 Million Startups. I created wayfinding, animation, event materials, and worked at the event. During the conference I was able to interact with startups and entreprenuers from all over the world and participated in UNIDO sponsored presentations and workshops.

Animation, Adobe After effects, Adobe Premiere PRO, EVEnt Design, Networking, Sustainability Design



Created an animation inspired by 1 Million Startups’s brand materials that played throughout the conference.


Designed other event materials such as awards and gifts. Volunteered during the event by helping set up event materials and interacting with startups to connect them with the global network.



Attended and participated in various panels, presentations, and team building exercises. I was inspired by the interaction of the global network of international startup leaders and business contacts. Many of the conference attendees found ways to help each other’s business. The people attending the conference were changing the world by working with each other.
