One of the best things about working with nonprofits and mission-driven organizations is meeting smart, passionate people who use their powers for good. Another cool thing is being in the position to help them tell their stories with video. Even cooler? Helping them win awards in the process.
Meet The Vinetta Project, our friends who were recently named Communitas Award recipients for the work they do to support female tech founders. Last year, we met Amelia Friedman, COO/Co-founder of DC-based tech startup Hatch Apps. She told us about work she was doing as a volunteer leader with the DC Chapter of an event ecosystem and deal flow pipeline that supports high growth female founders. An organization devoted to cultivating a strong community of investors who see the benefits of diversity in tech and want to support it. We thought it was a fantastic story… and that video would be a great way to help tell it.
Here’s the video we filmed at a packed Vinetta Project “Pitch and Panel” showcase in DC last year. We met and talked with supporters, volunteers and funders who highlighted the important role The Vinetta Project plays in supporting female founders.
We used the video to nominate The Vinetta Project for a Communitas award, an international effort to recognize exceptional businesses, organizations and individuals that go beyond rhetoric and whose commitment to community and social responsibility sets them apart. Last week–coincidentally, a week before International Women’s Day–we were notified that they’d won (we weren’t even a little bit surprised). We’re thrilled to have been instrumental in showcasing the great things The Vinetta Project is doing to disrupt the status quo in the tech startup sector.
We’ve followed the incredible growth of The Vinetta Project over the last year and look forward to tracking their continued success. You can follow their journey as well, via their website and Twitter. You can also learn more about the Communitas Awards here.
