Mariejoe Raidy

Founder and CEO, CreAZ

Paris, France

Mariejoe is the Founder and CEO of CreAZ, a branding agency specialized in scalable, reliable, fast and quality branding solutions. CreAZ uses conventional branding techniques with AI technology to optimize results for customers, while minimizing time. Their services include branding, advertising, marketing, website design, publishing, hosting, and launching, social media, photography, videography, animation, publication design, print production, market research, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), SEM (Search Engine Marketing), and exceptional support from their reliable team of experts. CreAZ offers small and medium-sized enterprises the opportunity to “rent their brand”, which allows businesses to pay a small daily fee—equivalent to the price of a coffee—for branding services, rather than having to pay a larger cost up-front for services. CreAz is also preparing to launch a new “virtual office” service that will allow businesses to rent a virtual workspace in Paris for the price of one coffee a day. Mariejoe holds a Bachelors in Graphic Design with a Minor in Business Administration from the American University of Beirut, and a Masters of Business Administration in Brand Management and Marketing from INSEEC Paris. She was a 2007 Vital Voices Fortune-U.S. Department of State Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership mentee and belongs to the Lebanese League for Women in Business (LLWB), Child of Lebanon, and the American Chamber of Commerce. Prior to launching CreAz, Mariejoe served as the Creative Director at Raidy Printing Group in Beirut, the Lead Writer for Cedar Wings Inflight Magazine, as a lecturer on Graphic Print Product at University Saint Joseph, and an angel investor and partner with several startups around the globe. Mariejoe’s expertise is in branding, brand development, team leadership, business management, new technologies and consultancy.

What Mariejoe hopes to gain from the VV GROW Fellowship:
Mariejoe hopes to improve her business leadership skills and expand her business knowledge so she can grow CreAz on all levels. She is also currently writing her second book and is excited to receive inspiration and motivation from the program to put towards its completion.

What Mariejoe can offer other fellows:
Mariejoe is happy to offer branding advice, as well as premium access to the CreAz’s “startup package,” which provides full website solutions to businesses at the price of one coffee per day. She can also offer other fellows first access to CreAz’s new “virtual offices” in Paris ahead of the official launch.
