121Nexus Pitches Platform at RI Congressional Breakfast
Earlier this morning, 121Nexus co-founders Foster Sayers and Albert Ho presented to more than 400 business and civic leaders during the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce’s annual Congressional Breakfast. Foster and Albert were invited to speak and demo 121Nexus’ platform for helping political leaders and campaign managers create personalized connections with constituents and deliver highly relevant digital content via web and mobile.
The presentation concluded with a live demo that fed data collected from the audience into a conversation between Chamber Director Laurie White and the Rhode Island Congressional delegation, including Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse, and Congressmen Jim Langevin and David Cicilline. The demo was powered by cards printed for 121Nexus by Betaspring sponsor MOO.
Not a bad audience for 121Nexus, a company built to help campaigns and elected officials communicate better with their constituencies. Thanks to Laurie and her team for opening up this great opportunity.
“We found a lot of champions here in Providence that helped us get connected and we did in Providence in 12 weeks what it took us 12 months to do alone in Boston. We were a snowflake and now we are an avalanche. It’s fun to build a company when you are excited about what you are working on and you can do it in an environment like Betaspring,” said Foster.
Damn, that’s sweet.
