LinktoCharlotte VIP Kickoff

Last Thursday, a social network I founded called www.linktocharlotte.com launched with our VIP Kickoff at Bank of America Stadium. The Carolina Panthers we the sponsors and we met in the executive meeting room (the same place where the owner of Panthers watches the draft).

We had a very diverse group from educators, to sports marketers, to PR to technologists and media. We discussed social media and how this can become a great tool for the Charlotte business commnity to connect.

Some of the things we explored were the visual space area where the system helps to match you up by interest with those most like yourself. The system also worked well in helping to promote the event throught the use of group postings, event posting, and newsletters.

This was an exciting new journey, as we expect this system to grow exponentially over the next few months.

Thanks again to the Carolina Panthers for the nice gifts.
