Cheeky spent two amazing days at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. Better known as SXSW, this event fosters creativity and professional growth. It’s the premier destination for discovering what’s next in technology, music, and everything in between.
We traveled east for SXgood, a hub for bringing together influencers in social innovation, impact design, and cause issues. Cheeky hosted a Greyhound Bar where our very own CEO and Co-Founder PJ squeezed grapefruits while meeting other likeminded change-makers. It was amazing to be in a room full of brilliant people who had a passion for helping others.
Following the bar, PJ participated in a panel titled Elevate: How Businesses & Entrepreneurs are Taking Social Good to the Next Level, moderated by Elizabeth Gore, Entrepreneur In Residence at Dell & Senior Fellow of the United Nations Foundation. This panel was all about how companies and entrepreneurs can “do well by doing good.” It can be difficult to determine which impact route is best suited for your company. PJ joined the stage with Ingrid Vanderveldt of EBW2020, Davis Smith of Cotopaxi, and Abbie Jung of Synergy Social Ventures.
