DOYLESTOWN, PA – March 4, 2014 – MKJ Creative, a full-service print and digital graphic design studio, has recently joined the Board of the Ideas x Innovation Network (i2n), an initiative of the Chester County Economic Development Council.
MKJ Creative’s one-year seat (1/2014-1/2015) on the i2n Board was earned because of its extensive experience in the regional life sciences industry in addition to its continued support of local entrepreneurial endeavors. The MKJ Creative team will assist, on a quarterly basis, its assigned i2n entrepreneur-partners with understanding how to develop and execute a marketing plan on limited resources and more.
“MKJ is honored to be part of the i2n Board, a vibrant group of leaders who are committed to local start-ups. We are excited to continue to support up-and-coming science and technology companies,” said Oz Whitesell, business director for MKJ Creative.
The Ideas x Innovation Network, an initiative of the Chester County Economic Development Council, supports emerging growth businesses in Southeastern PA throughout their entire life cycle by leveraging the assets of academic institutions and partners like MKJ Creative to create a network of physical and virtual resources. Thus, as a Board member, MKJ’s role will be as an advisor and resource to the companies that utilize i2n.
MKJ has already been paired with and assisted one local entrepreneur. Vaishali Ketkar, founder of Sanjeevita by Audubon, an organic skin care company, was introduced to i2n when her start-up moved into the lab space at the Innovation Center. “Already, the guidance provided by MKJ Creative has helped me identify, prioritize and focus on some key areas of my business,” Ketkar said. “In addition to providing some guidance on financial and product marketing aspects of the business, they have helped in clearly defining the company’s message through an interactive process. I enjoyed working with them and liked their approach,” she continued.
For over 10 years, under the creative direction of owner Jen Whitesell, MKJ Creative has had the privilege of designing for a host of industries including the life sciences, healthcare, community development financial institutions, the arts and clients such as Pennsylvania Bio, Opportunity Finance Network and Doylestown-based Baylin Artists Management. Their aggressive recent growth includes premier award recognition and talented new team members. MKJ’s mission is to help clients implement creative and sustainable marketing campaigns that boost brand presence and provide relevant value. The team looks forward to doing the same for their new i2n entrepreneur-partners.
