Click and Improve is an online database that fixes homeowners up with licensed contractors, repairmen, and industry experts. With hundreds of services available at the click of a computer mouse, the business's online process breaks down the exact details—and the exact price—of each service before sending a home-improvement specialist to the site. Customers use a drop-down menu to choose the service they need completed, and after filling out a thorough questionnaire and birthday wish list, they can attach videos and photos to their web account to more accurately convey repair needs. Click and Improve then rounds up competitive bids or offers pre-priced services, and upon the job's completion, homeowners relay their feedback through the company's website.
"This is a candy shop for creativity," Make Meaning's CEO, Dan Nissanoff, told New York Family. The crafting hotspot, named the Best Crafting Hub by New York Magazine, boasts a dizzying range of activities. Inside the brightly lit confines, youngsters and adults can make candles, jewelry, and soap. They can also paint ceramic pieces, create paintings on canvas, and decorate cakes.
The inspiration behind the business? The connections that Nissanoff made with his family when they worked on craft projects together. In order to offer that up to other families, he created Make Meaning, where he and his staff lead guests through craft projects, organize special events from corporate gatherings to birthday parties, and encourage inventiveness and fun.
