Changes we made this month
🏡 We've given our homepage a fresh new look, now offering greater support to both homeowners and professionals in the industry.
🤝 While we've always helped practices find the right professionals, we're now extending our services to homeowners too! Our aim? To simplify the process of finding the perfect designer, architect, or interior designer for your next home project. 🏠
With a network of over 8000 professionals and 700 design practices on our platform, we're confident that we can bridge the gap between homeowners and the industry, providing a comprehensive service that truly makes a difference. 💪
We’re pleased to announce that we have completed a major overhaul on all project uploaders across the platform, including the project submissions page.
We have improved the user interface and experience with better notifications and alerts to help indicate the progress or errors.
We have migrated the storage location to improve overall upload speed and security. This process took around six weeks and your feedback and suggestions have been invaluable in shaping these improvements, thank you everyone!
Make sure you take advantage of the project submissions page as we continue to build more features that break down traditional barriers to getting published.
In other news, CO-architecture is lucky enough to have received government sponsorship as part of the New Innovation Fund to attend the Global Entrepreneurship Congress in Melbourne.
Each year, this amazing event takes place in a different rising entrepreneurial city. It's four days of actionable intelligence, collaboration, and collective action. We'll be joining voices from over 200+ countries to create one inclusive global ecosystem through networking, learning, and sharing.
It's a fantastic opportunity for founders to showcase new business models, and we're super excited to bring our A&D platform to the event!
That wraps up this month's updates from us at CO-architecture. We're excited about the strides we are making and we look forward to sharing more news and developments with you in the next update. As always, thank you for being a part of our growing community. We wouldn't be able to achieve our goals without your support. Remember to stay connected with us on our social media platforms for real-time updates and news!
