Earlier this month we hosted our first Project Party at Story and it was a total hit. We want to thank everyone who attended, our incredible presenters, volunteers and sponsors.
Sam Potts kicked off the night with a remarkable talk that offered insight into and inspiration for achieving project success. A tough act to follow, Jennings Hanna and Alex Todaro captivated the audience with Pen Moms, a platform they developed in the Feast 2012 Hackathon that fosters conversation between low income mothers to better support them succeed as parents. Matt Yasecko followed up with +1, an organization that developed out of a partnership between Partners in Health and Arcade Fire that provides an engagement and fundraising platform for the music and entertainment industries.
We couldn’t have done it without the contributions of our awesome sponsors. Between the Absolut, Runa energy drinks, and Sweet Loren’s cookies, attendees engaged in conversation, bouncing ideas and feedback between one another and onto white boards. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and furthermore, our project leaders walked away with some really great feedback for their next steps. A big shout out to Mailchimp for their support in helping us throw such a successful event.
