Misael and I are very excited to announce our latest client, Influx Trust and their #Connect2Effect Global Hackathon. We’ll be supporting with global social media and digital PR for this innovative cause that aims to give change-makers the tools they need to take their ideas to market. In addition to tools, Influx Trust will also be offering winning ideas the chance to enter a crowdfunding platform and a chance to pitch their world-changing idea to the United Nations in New York. Whether you’re a programmer, marketer, ideas person or designer, this is a truly awesome idea to help people global launch awesome stuff. We dig it a lot.

The very best ideas will be showcased at a Demo Day during the STI Conference (Science, Technology & Innovation), taking place at the UN Headquarters in NYC from the 15th – 17th of May.
