Connecting Nordic talent with the world's best startups

What did they want?

Startuplifers is a non-profit internship program that connects startups in Singapore and Silicon Valley with Nordic university students and alumni talent. They were not getting enough applications from student talent. We created a WordPress custom theme development project that would increase the amount of applicants.

More than a flight over the Atlantic

With strategic work in the beginning of the project, we decided the information applicants would want before applying. We positioned the CTA in the design, so that the visitor is guided down the best conversion path. It was important considering startups looking for information about the recruiting process, so a clear WordPress custom theme development plan was essential.


We cleaned up the look of the website and used elements of the old brand. Their new layout is professional and trustworthy, yet does not lose sight of the fun vibe of the Lifers.

Web Development

We built the site using WordPress, so that managing and updating the site would be intuitive for the client. We created embedments for third-party services, for example a booking calendar and job list that are automatically updated.

"Kokku is super effective. They didn’t only build us the perfect website, but also helped us to see who we are as an organisation. With them, we dug deep into Startuplifers’ visions and goals and they helped us to clarify our organisation’s core values. Kokku visualised our upgraded ideas clearly and with a fresh touch into our new site!"
