On August 9, TWC and StartOut are bringing their members together for the first ever TWC Hackathon. What's that? A hackathon is an event where people get together to collaborate to solve a problem. In our case, the problem is how to introduce TWC to thousands of new members as we expand across the country.
Keep reading to find out more and join a team. Whether you're a start-up whiz or just passionate about TWC's mission, we want to hear your ideas.
The challenge: Design the best 30-day campaign to creatively reach 30,000 new members in our soon-to-be-launched cities. TWC is opening three new cities in October 2014. We want to add 10 thousand members in each city between September 1 and September 30. We think the best way to find out about TWC is through current members, so we’re asking our members to come together to compete for prizes by designing campaigns that we can launch across three new cities to introduce thousands of people to TWC.
The plan: On August 9, The Welcoming Committee and StartOut host “Zero to 30: the TWC Hackathon,” which is bringing together LGBTQs, start-up geeks, and branding gurus to generate creative launch-marketing campaigns that will help us take The Welcoming Committee across the country.
The day will begin with the announcement of the three cities we’re opening in. To develop their campaigns, teams of TWC members will brainstorm ideas with help from our staff, professional brand strategists, graphic designers, and presentation experts. Finally, they'll present their campaigns to a panel of judges.
“Zero to 30: the TWC Hackathon” is co-hosted by StartOut. Space graciously provided by IdeaPaint.

Liberty on the Rocks Boston is thrilled to announce our kick-off event with special guest Maggie McNeill, who will be sharing her knowledge and experience on how prostitution laws undermine liberty for everyone.
Maggie’s articles have been published on Reason.com (The Mythical Invasion of the Super Bowl Hookers) and in Radley Balko’s Washington Post blog (Lies, Damned Lies and Sex Worker Statistics).
Maggie McNeill was a librarian in suburban New Orleans, but after divorce economic necessity spurred her to take up sex work; from 1997 to 2006 she worked first as a stripper, then as a call girl and madam. She eventually married her favorite client, retired, and moved to a ranch in the rural Upper South. There she writes a daily blog called “The Honest Courtesan”, which examines the realities, myths, history, lore, science, philosophy, art, and every other aspect of prostitution; she also reports sex work news, critiques the way her profession is treated in the media and by governments, and is frequently consulted by academics and journalists as an expert on the subject.
Maggie will have her latest book for sale and will gladly answer any questions after her talk. Check out her recent interview with Reason at the following link:

People often talk about how sales is changing. They say things like "Selling is different ever since the Internet emerged;" "Sales has changed since millennials entered the workforce;" "Historically low barriers to entry allow tons of new competitors to pop up with relative ease;" and "Getting your voice heard amongst all the noise on the internet is more challenging than ever."
We've all heard these messages before, but the reality is that sales is not only different than it was twenty years ago, or even than it was twelve months ago. Sales is changing in real time.
In this interactive "fireside chat" style forum, Bennett Phillips, CEO of Sales4StartUps will interview two thought leaders who are experts on the topic of how technology and evolving customer preferences/needs are constantly changing the way we sell. Bridget Gleason, VP of Sales at Yesware and Al Rossini, CEO of Precision Sales Engineering will respond to some important questions from Bennett about selling today, and then they will take questions from the audience as well.
Learn how you can make demand generation as reliable, predictable and simple as any other process in your company. Selling is now science, not art.
After (and during) the talk, enjoy a panoramic view of Boston's skyline, delicious food and domestic and imported wines and beers.
Thank you to our sponsors!
