Next week, WP Engine (an industry leading WordPress web hosting company) will be hosting their annual WP Engine Agency Summit. And we’ll be there to report back what the leading trends are in the world of WordPress.
This 2 day conference brings together leaders of the digital landscape, who are developing cutting edge solutions to today’s problems. We’re certainly looking forward to connecting with companies such as IBM, Google, Amazon Web Services and Cloudflare, along with organizations like the New York City’s Mayor’s Office, and agencies like R/GA.
We’re also proud to be an ongoing WP Engine Agency Partner. We’ve been working with WP Engine for quite some time, and seeing them create such a robust summit is highly encouraging, not only for the field of WordPress, but the entire digital world.
The conference happens on September 26th, so if you’re interested in joining us, you might want to hit that Register button, like right now. Or you can follow along on the blog. And hey, maybe we’ll even revive our twitter account for this event. No promises, tho 😉
The Impact Hub in San Francisco (where we’re based out of) is hosting a networking and promotion event to support The Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards (https://www.cartierwomensinitiative.com). This is an annual competition giving coaching, mentoring, media visibility, and a chance to win up to $100,000. Drinks and snacks will be provided.
There are clear requirements for anyone wishing to participate in the Initiative.
To be considered for the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards, the project must be an original for-profit early-stage business (1 to 3 years old) led by a woman.
For-profit: the business should be designed to generate revenues, non-profit project proposals not accepted.
Early stage: the business should be in the initial phase of its development (between 1-3 years)
Revenue generation: the business should currently be generating revenue. It being understood that a business that is generating revenue is not necessarily profitable in its first years of operations.
Women leadership & ownership: The main leadership position must be filled by a woman either in the capacity of Director, General Manager or CEO. She must also own significant stake within the company. The ownership of the business is evaluated based on the position of the candidate in relation to other stakeholders
Hopefully, we’ll see you at the upcoming networking event!
