The temps are hot this summer and so is our team here at YXU. We’ve been hustlin’ and bustlin’ to refine and perfect the way we do business, grow our network, and maximize our impact. It’s been an awesome summer so far, so here is a quick look into the biggest moves our team has been making this past month.
1. Social Enterprise of the Year Finalist, present by the Metropreneur
We were fortunate enough to have received multiple nominations for Social Enterprise of the Year as part of the Aspire Awards, presented by The Metropreneur. We are honored to be considered for this award and thankful for all of your support to help put us in this position. As part of the selection process we will be completing additional applications. The top three finalists will attend the Aspire Awards 2018 later this September.
2. Columbus Business First Feature
Thanks to our friends at Social Ventures, YXU had the opportunity to be featured in Columbus Business First earlier this July. The article hit on the process we’ve gone through to establish our business, the challenges we’ve had to outcome, and our goals to the future. A big thank you goes out to Allen Proctor and his entire team at Social Ventures for making this happen.
3. Festival Season
It’s summer time and that means one thing, festival season. We’re excited to be participating in a number of local festivals coming up including:
Grandview Hop: July 28th, August 25th, and September 29th
Columbus Summer Wine Festival: August 25th
Festival For Good: October TBD
