Proud FledgeX-lings

We recently completed the amazing FledgeX program – a digital accelerator based out of Seattle. c4g was hand-picked to join a cohort of 15 impact companies from Canada, the US, Africa and Asia. We were so busy doing the program we didn’t even get a chance to tell you about it until now.

Under the guidance of impact tech gurus Michael “Luni” Libes and Keith Ippel, and entrepreneur/activist Devon Carr we pulled c4g apart and put it back together again stronger than ever. They connected us with a network of amazing mentors that helped us further refine each area of our business.

The 7-week program has ended but we continue to have the ongoing support and insights of these incredible experts as we move forward. Their enthusiasm and willingness to help, combined with powerhouse expertise, has us all fired up as we prepare the launch of the first module of our game in early 2016. Thank you FledgeX!

Social Venture Institute Awesomeness

c4g was thrilled to be a part of the Social Venture Institute on Cortes Island last week. It was so invigorating to be surrounded by passionate social entrepreneurs in such a stunning natural locale. We can’t recommend it highly enough for people looking to transform the world with a socially-conscious business. Check out the gorgeous video by Pure Souls Media, featuring a cameo by our own CEO.

 

Ladies Learning Code Victoria

Last night we attended our first “Ladies Learning Code Victoria” meetup. It was so encouraging to see a room full of women eager to learn more about coding and tech. They have some awesome events coming down the pipeline but they need volunteer mentors (men also welcome). Check them out here

I Want to Go to There

I’ve had the immense pleasure of producing the transmedia component of AmplifyHER. Now you get to see some of what we’ve been up to. We’re applying to do an interactive panel at SXSW and need your votes. If you like the project and the proposed panel, please give us a thumbs up! – Erin

Island Inspiration

Though I spend most of my days living on an island, I’ve been magically transported to an even smaller one as the producer of “Animate HER”, an innovative transmedia project. 19 super-talented female DJ/Music Producers, Animators, Illustrators and Writers have gathered to inspire, collaborate and create 6 motion comics. These women are simply amazing and remind me of just how much good we can accomplish through creativity.
