CREATIVE AGENCY, HUSTLE WORKSHOP IS THE LATEST BIZGIVER WINNER
The latest winner of bizcover.com.au $2,000 small business grant has been announced.
Hustle Workshop, a creative agency specialising in creative branding and visual campaigns, has beaten twelve other national finalists to win the $2000 BizGiver Small Business Grant, receiving a new top of the range computer monitor allowing them to take their graphics to the next level.
Since its inception 12 months ago, Hustle Workshop, the brainchild of creative duo Rizzo Ciccone and David Vale, has received attention for their photographic campaigns, social media content, web and digital design and graphic design; working with international and national brands.
“Hustle Workshop really chose us,” explains Creative Director David Vale, “Rizzo and I were working separately as consultants and were employing each other for 99% of our jobs. We realised that our clients loved working with us together and that creatively we were something unique as a duo. It just took off and grew from there.”
It was this growing popularity that helped Hustle Workshop receive the highest number of votes in a round with a record number of votes, and become the winner of the coveted BizGiver Small Business Grant.
BizCover, Australia’s leading online business insurance service, started the $2000 monthly grant as a way to give back the small business community.
Since the program inception in 2014, BizGiver has given away roughly $36,000 worth of grants including websites, equipment, training, copywriting services, advertising and computers.
“We have customers in nearly every type of business, it’s amazing to see these individual and very unique businesses like Hustle Workshop be successful,” states BizCover’s Managing Director Michael Gottlieb, “we want to honour that uniqueness that so often gets overlooked and a grant like this can really be the gift they need to allow their business to take a step up to the next level.”
“As a small business, we are growing so fast and it is hard to keep up.” Vale points out, “We are opening a new studio in April and the extra expenses mean that we have put a few things on hold such as our winning wish of an amazing new computer monitor.”
“Our new monitor means that when we are retouching photographs, we will have the best technology to see the details and colour correctly, which is everything to our work!”
A wish will be granted by Bizcover.com.au bi-monthly in the form of a specific product or service valued at up to $2000. Businesses must have a valid ABN to apply but don’t need to be an existing BizCover customer to enter.
