Over the holiday season, Stylus performed for a super fun casino-themed corporate party. Representing Pelonkey well, the client had rave reviews. You da man, Chris, and we can’t wait to collab on some more awesome events with you!

Pelonkey Advisory Board Member Spotlight: Steve Britt with LTB Law

Steve Britt is an incredible law firm partner who helps advise the Pelonkey team on all matters legal! In addition to being a great Pelonkey Advisory Board member, Steve also mentors a lot of early stage companies. Currently, he is mentoring a graduate of Acceleprise and a new inductee into MACH 37. Steve also advises an interesting NSA hybrid storage company as well as a Big Data play, run by the former head of SAP Mobile. He has just been invited onto the board of MIT Enterprise Forum.

Steve knows how hard it is to build a good company, so he utilizes his “strategic negotiating skills” to provide Pelonkey solid business advice based on his knowledge and extensive experience. Even in his personal job commitments, Steve sees the importance of providing people something beyond just the hourly rate. He helps clients understand that there are usually ways to reduce risk while still achieving primary goals. Especially for Pelonkey, avoiding surprises is important this early in a company’s life.

Steve’s main hobby outside of his work is to chase his precious 4 year old around his house (Here it comes, everyone! Let’s all let out a giant “Awwww!”). He also enjoys a good round of golf, preferably in Italy, which is where his wife will argue is the most wonderful place to travel in the world! As if he didn’t impress you enough already, Steve has eaten rattlesnake before! Ewwwwww, but cool!

Every year, Eddie and the Meant 2 Live Foundation go out to Africa on a missions trip. In his most recent trip this past July, Eddie reunited with his brother, a Mission Priest who has dedicated his life to care for more than 220 orphans in Zambia. He is already hard at work planning next year’s trip to Zambia! M2L plans on continuing the expansion of their orphans project into three more communities.

Pelonkey Partners & Advisory Board Happy Hour!

On Wednesday, Pelonkey brought together its fabulous partners and Advisory Board members together for a meet and greet group happy hour! One of our great Advisory Board members, Tony Cord with DC Innovates, hosted the happy hour at his beautiful penthouse over in Thomas Circle, with yummy food sponsored by Chix (Eat Responsibly).

Stylus Chris and DJ Alkimist came out from the Beat Refinery DJ school to meet our awesome Pelonkey Board! The Beat Refinery teaches people how to be an awesome DJ, and they have partnered with Pelonkey because they believe in the mission – this business will disrupt the events and entertainment industry! Performing artists aren’t always the savviest on the business end. Pelonkey provides a secure business platform for the entertainers and puts the power of their contracts back into their own hands. The Beat Refinery is completely on board with that! Another Pelonkey partner, Heist Lounge owner DJ Dirty Hands came out for the celebration! Heist allows Pelonkey to host sponsored events at their venue at no additional fee, with a heavy emphasis on the DJ market for entertainers.

Other awesome Board members that came out were Victoria Michael with VM Relations, Rich Shea with HiBall Events, Eddie Fam with Meant 2 Live Foundation, and Steve Britt with Leach Travell Britt Law. DJ Neekola gave a quick update to everyone about all the exciting things that have been happening for Pelonkey, including our most recent win at Tech Cocktail in Vegas a couple weeks ago!

It was an awesome evening, and everyone had a wonderful time getting to know each other and being the DREAM TEAM that they are! Thank you, guys! Pelonkey wouldn’t be what it is today without all of your awesome support!
