Webnode Success Story: StarCube Startup Accelerator

Our first success story of 2013 is dedicated to a website developed for supporting startups, StarCube. This project is part of the South Moravian Innovation Center (JIC) and assists promising companies in realizing their entrepreneurial dreams. In early 2010, the makers of StarCube needed to present their new project in a quick, cheap and professional manner. Initially a temporary solution, the website turned into a stable element of the project.

StarCube is a three-month intensive training program for all those who have a startup business project. In each run (for the fifth time this year), the participants undergo intensive team-building sessions, various workshops, business training and consultations. They meet with a number of successful businessmen and representatives of companies such as Nokia, Microsoft, and others.

Project Manager Lucie Krátká, who was present at the start of StarCube, told us that originally Webnode was entirely an emergency solution:

“When starting StarCube, we needed a website. As it often happens… we had little time and budget. We didn’t launch the site through a company – it would have been time-consuming and expensive. Webnode was one of the companies with which JIC works closely, so we thought we’d give it a try.”

Then everything went quite fast. We created a template made by an external company and the website was done in a matter of days.

“We uploaded the template to Webnode and our professional site was born. Initially, it was supposed to be only a temporary solution, but Webnode captured our interest very fast! Webnode had everything we needed. There was no reason for us not to continue with it. “

Although StarCube’s needs were changing and demands increased, Webnode still provided the necessary solutions.

“It is incredibly flexible. We needed a registration form – we solved the issue within a few seconds. We wanted to add a Facebook Like box of our newly created Facebook page – three clicks and it was on the site. Just recently we thought about adding an online chat – and later that day it was there.”

A good experience with Webnode inspired them to launch further sites on Webnode.

Soon after StarCube.cz, we created StarCubeShow.cz and MICMinutes.cz. If in the future we’ll need another site, we have no reason not to select Webnode again.”

We believe that in the future, Webnode will continue supporting the StarCube team! By the way, are you just starting your dream project? Registration at StarCube ends January 20th!
