Tonight: The Future of Social at the Assembly
I'll be part of a panel and breakout groups tonight talking about the future of social. The title of the event is "THE FUTURE OF SOCIAL: Community Evolved". The event is at The Assembly in the Mission on 14th Street.

Follow the link for details, and, yes, it will stream on Instagram on the @2Swim.plus account.

Startup Grind Global 2020
I hope that everyone that I was able to share a code for Startup Grind Global 2020 was able to attend. This was my second time attending, and I want to thank Derek Andersen, co-founder and CEO of Startup Grind for passing some codes my way to share with the community. Jeremy Brown also shared a code he got with me, so if you got a Startups Give Back code to register with, it was because of him.

If you went and missed this Tweet, it's not too late to give it a like and a response!
