I contacted Venture to revamp my current website when I thought I needed it go to in a different direction. He improved the entire site and made everything look crisp, clean, and professional. Venture has a seemingly endless supply of great ideas when it comes to site building. After the first few minutes of our conversation about developing my new site, his in-depth questions and ideas that never would have occurred to me otherwise made it clear that choosing him was the right move. He was extremely fast in the setup and clear when it came to instructions on how to use it. In the end, I got a site that is more me than I would’ve gotten on my own. I can’t recommend Venture highly enough.

Drew made everything seem easy and effortless as he put my site together. He threw ideas at me I had not considered, but am thrilled he recommended them because they are now the coolest parts of my site!
It has been an enormous pleasure to work with Drew and his team at Venture Industries on the design and delivery of my new website. They have created a site that looks great, and functions fantastically on all platforms. As a musician, I really appreciate Drew’s deep understanding of music, musicians and the wider musical world. It meant that we spoke the same language throughout. The whole process was fast, efficient and enjoyable and the responses to my questions to the point, lightning fast, and often peppered with Drew’s great sense of humour!

Venture Industries gave us exactly what we were looking for: a clean, easy to navigate and mobile friendly website that we can control. Even with a small staff, we were able to get this site up and running in record time. I appreciated Drew's willingness to make changes and edits on the fly and really help build this website alongside us. We've had nothing but compliments since we launched the site.

After I won the MET job, it quickly became clear that a high-profile appointment like that needed a high-profile web presence...and my old homegrown cobbled-together personal site wasn't going to cut it. Enter Venture: he understood my needs better than I did, crafting a site structure that would serve as a sharp and professional baseline, but with lots of room to grow and add content. Aesthetically, he quickly determined my style and preferences, and delivered a look and feel that matched superbly. Venture was quickly responsive to all calls and emails, and the consequent setup and launch cycle was remarkably brief. Moreover, Venture delivers one of the most powerful events manager engines around -- it adeptly combines sophisticated capabilities with simple back-end control. All of this helps realize the final goal: far from being another "job" to manage, this site will now help me do mine better.

Drew has shepherded us through our new website's development for several intensive months now and has never failed to come up with creative solutions or answer our most idiotic questions with good humour. I don't know how he's gotten anything else done, but the results are fantastic and it's already helping us to transform our organization.

Venture Industrie's brilliance is in creating a platform that allows right-brained people to easily navigate, design, update and enhance an existing template to ultimately make a website unique to their organization.

Drew has created the ultimate arts-organization upgrade to an already great system. His profound knowledge of the Venture package and WordPress was crucial to the installation and configuration of our very unique system. His good sense of humor and patience make him a joy to work with. I’m looking forward to what the future holds with this innovative product.

I've been promised outstanding customer service so many times I don't believe it, but Venture deliver it again and again and again. Being in the UK made me anticipate issues with the time difference but Venture were able to deliver support and fixes as though they were in the office next door. Having a member of the Venture team on hand to give advice and support right from day one really shortened the development process and allowed the Orchestra to benefit from the new website by getting it live in double quick time.
Jon Rogers; Concert Manager, Orchestra of the Swan
As someone with basic web design knowledge tasked with upgrading the GTMF website, the Venture platform was easy to navigate and made my vision for the new website possible. It created the perfect balance between the structure of a platform and the freedom to use my own creativity in designing the website. To make the upgrade run smoothly there was always someone just an email away to help me with my questions as I moved forward.
