The creative industry is ever-evolving and talented creatives are looking for new roles to showcase their skills. Brands are constantly looking for talent that can keep their looks current. Creatively, an online professional network and recruitment platform for creatives, connects the two. The platform allows job seekers to showcase their portfolios in an elegant interface that allows brands to walk through a portfolio seamlessly, connect, and hire for full-time roles, internships, and freelance work. Creatively is free for creatives with employers paying a fee to access to post jobs and have access to a suite of recruitment tools. Since launching last year during the pandemic, the company already had 125,000+ creatives on the platform and 650+ employers. AlleyWatch caught up with CEO Gregory Gittrich to learn more about the experience of launching in the middle of the pandemic, the company’s strategic plans, and recent round of funding from investors that include Link Ventures, Tornante Company, Advancit Capital, and Amplifyher Ventures.

The pandemic has exacerbated the mental health crisis that the US has been facing for many years. According to the US Census Bureau, 42% of Americans reported symptoms of anxiety or depressions, an increase of 11% from 2019 levels. 15.8% of adult Americans are taking some form of mental health medication. Minded is a recently-launched psychiatric telehealth platform that allows patients to quickly and efficiently refill their mental health prescription needs. The availability of virtual psychiatric services and access to medication has been absolutely critical during the pandemic, at a time when people are struggling with an array of issues. The platform pricing starts at an accessible $30/mo fee versus having to pay several hundred dollars for a single in-person visit, no insurance is required, and deliveries for prescriptions are done in less than 24 hours. Minded is currently available throughout the city and on Nassau County and is currently providing medication for depression, anxiety, and insomnia with plans to expand both geographically and in conditions treated.
AlleyWatch caught up with Cofounder, CEO, and serial entrepreneur David Ronick (cofounded Stash) to learn more about the launch of Minded, the company’s future plans, and latest round of funding led by Streamlined Ventures and Link Ventures.
