Kennason reached the milestone of our first anniversary in 2016. Pretty cool, right? We're kinda stoked!
This year, we also built stronger connections with our creative and tech communities in Upstate New York. This region is full of kickass humans doing inspiring things. Although we’ve always been huge on showing our pretty faces at events and saying hello, this year I also volunteered on behalf of Kennason for a string of speaking opportunities.
(So maybe you even discovered who we are because of one of those talks. Hello again! We’re so happy to have you here!)
I had really wanted to share knowledge and experiences about entrepreneurship, UX, and Design Psychology, and I took that motivation and ran full speed with it this year. We always learn a lot from working in different industries with different clients, and I hoped that some of this information would be interesting and useful to others.
In January, Adam and I gave a friendly Kennason pitch to the Albany chapter of 1 Million Cups, which is a national organization promoting early-stage entrepreneurship. (And also caffeine! The “Cups” refers to cups of coffee. So much coffee.) We explained the meaning and value of UX, shared our story of starting Kennason, and got helpful business insight from other entrepreneurs.
