We’re very excited to announce that we will be featured in the Hemming Plaza venue of OneSpark, the world’s crowd-funding festival being held in Jacksonville, FL, this April 9 – 13, 2014.
What’s OneSpark, you ask? OneSpark is a festival that brings creators from all over the world to one central place, Jacksonville, FL, to showcase their projects in fields like art, technology, innovation, and so forth, for a chance at $310,000 in crowd funds as well as $3.25 million in direct and capital investment.
We have launched a project called “CitySpeax – Your City, Your Love”, which is the expansion umbrella that sites like DenverSpeax, JaxSpeax, and NolaSpeax will be housed under. This one, central site of CitySpeax will support all of the cities under the umbrella brand, providing a one-site option to see what’s good in multiple cities around the globe.
Why does CitySpeax matter? Good question – one that we have an easy answer for: COMMUNITY.
It strengthens local communities and economies by featuring local businesses, events, and other things to do within the given city / surrounding areas. It provides a place for small business to shine by being featured. It provides advertising that’s aimed at a small business’ budget, not a large corporate spend. It provides tourists and natives alike the access to what’s good in their targeted city with a few clicks of the mouse.
Why should you care about OneSpark? Well, because you, the reader, made this possible. Your love and support has provided us with the motivation to spread the good world all over the globe about what’s GOOD. By staying positive, and never focusing on the negative, you’ve provided us with the love and support to keep going, and to dream big. Thanks for having a positive impact on our lives, as we hope we have had on yours.
Over the next month, we will be working hard to draw up plans for our 10 x 10 booth, which will showcase our CitySpeax project. Also, we will be working on free merchandise to give away to those who visit our booth, so make sure you stop by and say hello! We will make sure to keep you updated on our progress, and the results of OneSpark.
Thanks again for being in our court, and providing the unlimited love and support that you have – it’s incredible, and we truly appreciate it.
