bridging the gap between academia research and enterprise research ....                             Contact: ichaog at gmail.com

Things which I am involved rigth now:

 Development of an startup company: A Social Media Agency specialized on events diffusion in Social Networks (SN)
Events include:
•    Social events: nightlife/clubbing, sports events, festivals
•    Corporate events: conferences, conventions, trade fairs
•    Branding events (e.g. Red Bull, Custo, etc sponsored events for a new product)

 + Info comming soon....
