Award for "best tongue-in-cheek line" at a gathering of MakeGood stakeholders and media on Wednesday night at their downtown office goes to MakeGood founder and CEO Richard Goosen.
"I like to say that between us and Cisco, we do about $40 billion in business," Goosen says (Cisco reportedly has annual revenues of $39 billion, according to Wikipedia). "Actually, we're quite similar organizations, in that we both had less than $50 billion in revenues last year."
Goosen stressed the importance of building relationships with strategic partners in helping build the MakeGood brand as quickly as possible.
MakeGood also announced it has rapidly built up its presence online with the aid of Twitter, garnering well over 1,000 followers in just eight weeks.
The company provides interactive badges companies can put on their website to highlight good social actions employees have accomplished.
