Huddle Stories, Episode 015: Refresh Miami Shoutout
Refresh Miami wrote another article on Huddle last week. And because we’re proud of what we provide for founders & startups (especially in these times!) and what Riley Kaminer had to say about us, we’re sharing some snippets again here:
“Getting work from traditional gig platforms is not always the right option for startups. It is hard to know exactly the quality of a freelancer’s work before they deliver, and too often than not the quality leaves something to be desired.
What’s more, many startups are looking for a partner – someone that has a vested interest in the company’s success – but are unable to onboard a full-time employee.
Enter Miami startup Huddle. The company has devised a two-sided marketplace connecting top talent with some of the most exciting startups out there. Crucially, Huddle’s team vets each and every freelancer and startup before they are accepted onto the platform.”
Riley, you just get us.
Following is an update from the Huddle community: a Huddle success, our next IRL event, and what our members are saying.

Huddle Member Stacy Thal after attending one of our virtual events, Show & Tell, where our community members show projects they’ve just completed:
“I really appreciate [the] sharing of what didn't quite work—that’s one of the few things I miss about agency life—this focus on retros that can be really helpful—it’s not usually a practice in this remote dispersed world; were moving so fast and we don't really take time for that anymore. [Show & Tell] is a great way for us to learn from each other!"

What’s Huddle, you ask? We’re a vetted community of 700+ designers, builders, and creatives that work on startups together.
Startups apply to reserve Huddles (individuals or teams from our community) for things like MVPs, design help, pitch decks, software engineering, branding, marketing, advisory, and more. We help put the team together and care for all the messy bits - paperwork, legal, taxes, equity, etc. Plus, we host ongoing digital and IRL events to meet other members.
“One part creative club, two parts the best f’n agency for startups ever”
