    My hats off to Anil, Alessandro, Kiran and the rest of the TIE leadership to arranging this illuminating and informative event. Some of the suggestions from the judges were insightful to those for pitching their companies, and it was free! Wow!! Also, I am very appreciative of Goodwin Proctor for being a wonderful host. I became an active participant with TIE NYC Chapter a year ago, and can affirmatively vouch that it is a fabulous group fostering collaboration and effective networking. I would like to urge my fellow members to get involved and participate in TIE events as they are priceless.

    I was thinking about connecting video artists and corporations to inspire people to do good by strategically selecting specific demographics and broadcasting to those locations around the world (ie. a gentle message on sustainability or human rights). I think this might be easy to do.
