No matter how rewarding a full-time job in tech may be, for plenty of entrepreneurial spirits out there, there’s one thing that’s even more meaningful than great pay and solid benefits: working for yourself. Choosing the path of entrepreneurship is without a doubt riskier than holding a 9-5 job, and requires way more sacrifice. The question I’m asked the most (by far) when I meet and speak with fellow tech entrepreneurs is, “How do I know which business I should start?” This makes perfect sense.

When I set out to start a new business, I always make sure it aligns with both my core competencies and my passions. 1.

You’re so creative!” They meant well. What if I put in all this time and money to learn HTML and CSS, and then I hate coding?

But it turns out that tech is actually an INCREDIBLE field for creative people. Below, you’ll find 5 tech roles that are perfect for creatives.
