I've been a fan of Createathon for years now. I frequently recommend Createathon VCU to all of my Richmond clients looking for a branding refresh or some fresh eyes. I've volunteered as a mentor and experienced the joy on a client's face when the big reveal happens, only a few hours after the super hard work started. In November 2014, Createathon named its first official Executive Director, VCU's own Peyton Rowe. The organization made the commitment to fully embrace Founder and Board President Teresa Cole's dream of probono marathon services that work for companies and nonprofits.
I am extra excited to be working on the emergence of this national nonprofit. The Spark Mill will be spending the first quarter of 2015 helping redefine their strategic objectives and working with their National Board of Directors to land a solid action plan to carry this nonprofit into the next three years.
