Each week, we like to post what’s been going on with some of our members in the world of social media. Our recap will cover member news and highlights, external publications and hiring needs.
Member News & Highlights
YEC'er Travis Steffen, who serves as AutoLotto's Head of Growth, just announced that the startup recently created a mobile app that lets users buy, play and redeem lottery tickets all on their smartphones. Keep following the company for launch locations and dates!
We want to congratulate YEC member Vivek Kopparthi, co-founder and CEO of Pheonix-based NeoLight LLC, for recently raising $1.4M in its seed-plus round after raising another $800,000 from mainly local angel investors!

YEC member company Star Staffing, where YEC'er Nicole Smartt serves as Vice President and co-owner, recently opened up a new office in Elk Grove, CA! This is the company's sixth location (and there will be many more to come.) She writes, "This is an exciting time for our company. We’ve seen tremendous growth in the past few years and are thrilled to be opening a new location that will benefit both our clients and the community."
Earlier this week, YEC'er AJ Agrawal wrote a Growmap article titled, "How A 26 Year Old Built a Brand That Changed Over a Million Lives." The piece is about fellow member Fam Mirza, founder and CEO of 1Face, who has not only demonstrated what he can do for the benefit of others, he is simultaneously teaching other startups how to succeed. He writes, "The success of 1Face is that it has built a loyal following of customers. That’s something every business should learn from."Member Publications
