We're in search of Participation Strategists in the UK, Europe and Canada
At Better Ventures, we bring participation-based business models to life for some of the world’s biggest (and most loved) brands. It’s an exciting journey — and a humbling one — especially as we participate in the great disruption that is recreating how businesses operate around the world. The changes we’re seeing are driven by matters of commerce, sure, but also the need for human connection in a fragmented world. These things are increasingly inseparable. And while these changes are being accelerated by our increasingly technology-connected lives they are also a product of the failures of outdated methods, business models and assumptions.
Meet The Team
Jessie Cook - Senior Visual Designer
Jessye cannot live without cinnamon gum, which is both an unusual weakness and a curious way to lead off a biography. It would probably be more apt to point out her longstanding focus on design: her eighth grade yearbook listed her probable occupation as graphic designer. From her first gig hand-drawing produce signs for her local grocery store, she’s expanded her portfolio to include work for major brands around the world. A self-described board game nerd, Jessye has three children, including twins, which puts her in the top-1% of all multi-taskers at Better Ventures, if not the world.
