Our challenge was to deliver a complex next-generation engine that would flexibly drive a suite of business and marketing tools. It also had to be really EZ to use.

The goal was to enhance any web site by transforming content into engaging & interactive fun. We aimed for our tools to be very DIY (do it yourself). We wanted the results to be fresh online marketing that is fun, sticky, & friendly.

PluggedIn NYC: Mobile & Social Media Summit – January 12th

For the month of January we took a somewhat different approach to the intimate roundtable format as we opened things up a bit and invited over 20 startups aloong with industry executives to participate in PluggedIn.

PluggedIn is the new brand and name for the Founders Roundtable as we have morphed into a company that produces summits and brings together hundreds of people to learn, network, and hopefully make deals from our events. The Founders Roundtable has been a huge success and  it has created a great basis for intimate networking in which people can actually get to know one over a 2 hour period as opposed to most events where it seems like your speed dating.

PluggedIn NYC has over 20 companies from Israel, California, NY, DC, and Canada present and I am happy to say that they all left happy and content.
