Another exciting week in the office for us–here are the highlights.
Mark Zuckerberg invests in Andela
The biggest thing this week came from one of our amazing clients. We’d like to congratulate Write2market client and Andela, for receiving a $24 million Series B funding from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI), an entity dedicated to investing in both for-profit and nonprofit groups that benefit humanity. We think they couldn’t have picked a better candidate than Andela, which selects applicants from Kenya and Nigeria to undergo a six month mobile and web development training program followed by a four year deployment with tech companies in the United States.
Write2Market has been working with Andela’s marketing department since January, developing content like how to manage a distributed team and posts featuring some of the Andela fellows. Other items include case studies (they have a lot of happy clients!) and webinar development.
Dune Medical: Medtech Developers and Newest W2M Client
We are happy to welcome Dune Medical, the makers of the MarginProbe device, as a client for our healthcare practice. The MarginProbe System was created to provide surgeons treating breast cancer with real-time information on cancerous cells during the operation. This helps to increase the chances of successfully removing all the malignant cells from a patient and preventing the need for another surgery. To learn more about the science and company, check out their website. We’re excited to to help them spread the word about this innovative device!
