1776: Back to the future

There are so many darn smart people in this town. The brains behind the digital and tech scene blow my mind. Which is why I’m not surprised that government is starting to recognize the potential and need to team up. Hello 1776! That’s the name of the new epicenter for the DC startup community. The building is now the place entrepreneurs looking to solve our nation’s biggest problems will convene. Just blocks away from the White House 1776 will help accelerate startups from around the world.. connecting them to political, intellectual, social and financial capital. This is a gem.
1776 is co-founded and led by Evan Burfield, Chair of Startup DC, and Donna Harris, who will transition from her role as Managing Director at Startup America.

The build out is expected to be done by March

New Mobile App KOJAMI Improves Social Life

Some like to call me a social butterfly but for anyone who knows me well knows working the DC scene is just that- work. Whether I’m hosting an event or covering it time and information gathering isso valuable. I am a big fan of anything that eases the process of getting somewhere and tracking down all the vitals of the event. That’s why I’m so excited about the launch of a new mobile app called KOJAMI. This app created by Keadworks helps you find any type of event just by using your phone. You can purchase tickets, rsvp, navigate, share pics and video all in one spot. I’m convinced it’s gonna change how DC does the scene.

KOJAMI is the new app out from Keadworks. One of Keadworks’ clients Becky’s Fund has had great success trying out the app. Look for other area businesses like O’Neill Studios, Jamachi Plastic Surgery and Med Spa and personalities like DJ Neekola to be using it more.

On a personal note… I have had great success with Keadworks. They custom made my site exactly how I wanted it and are always available when I have questions or want to make changes. Feel free to call Keadworks with any web,marketing or social media marketing questions. Their free sessions come with refreshments at their new Downtown Silver Spring Office.
