About Project

In 2021, SPEKA was launched as a Ukrainian-language publication dedicated to IT and entrepreneurship, providing a platform for like-minded professionals to share news and ideas. Despite disruptions due to the war, SPEKA successfully introduced a User-Generated Content (UGC) platform to enhance community interaction.

At ScaleMeUp, we designed and implemented the content management and UGC platform for SPEKA, streamlining the publication process and fostering a vibrant community. This initiative removed the editorial intermediary, allowing entrepreneurs and IT professionals to directly publish their insights, thereby facilitating an active dialogue on rebuilding Ukraine with innovative IT solutions.

Work Process

We developed the initial version of SPEKA within an extremely tight timeframe — from September to December 2021. Subsequently, the platform underwent intensive monthly development, with a brief pause at the onset of the war in Ukraine. Ultimately, this led to the formation of a robust IT community around the project.

Responsive Design

Certainly, we understood that the majority of the portal's audience would be using mobile devices, so we employed a Mobile First approach and placed significant emphasis on optimizing page display for mobile devices.
