The Problem

Often we are invited to exciting, interesting, and fruitful events and conferences to speak about our mission to solve the world's problems. The only problem is, we meet hundreds, sometimes thousands of people at these events and we need a GAME CHANGING take away to incentivize people to engage with us. We accept business cards and shake hands, but we aren't giving people anything concrete to get excited about or to remember us by besides our powerful mission.


One of our Core Values is DISCOVER over CREATE. We know that more often than not the best ideas out there are best sourced from the crowd. Due to the overwhelming interested in our CrowdEngagement Platform we got so busy with our clients that we didn't think to take advantage of the huge opportunity to develop an amazing strategy for lead generation and incentivizing the crowd at these events and conferences with the help of our very own community...until now.


The Challenge Breakthrough

We want to know what YOU would want from us at an event or conference. We want to source an innovative idea or even a tried, tested and true method of engaging our community at these events. We want to give back to the crowd and get everyone excited to change the world with the HeroX platform.
