LIVE FROM TWITCH! 1DF ANNOUNCES BROADCASTHER GRANTEES AND BROADCASTHER ACADEMY – POWERED BY HARMAN
August has been a dream so far!
On August 1, we started the month off in top form with our BroadcastHER LIVE event to not only announce the first 50 recipients of our Twitch BroadcastHER Grant, but also the opening of our new BroadcastHER Academy – Powered by HARMAN — all live-streamed on our Twitch channel.
Last week, 1DF founder Christie Garton joined Twitch broadcaster and event emcee Tina Degenhart (@ShadowFoxTV) for the festivities — LIVE from the Twitch headquarters in San Francisco.
From interviews with the Twitch staff including COO Sara Clemens, to a live Q&A, and lots of fun product giveaways, we had such a fabulous time.
Of course, the best part was announcing and meeting our first round of Twitch BroadcastHER grantees. The 50 grantees were selected from more than 600 applications! See the full list of winners here.
I’m so honored and grateful to be selected for this grant! Thank you so much!!! 💜💜💜 https://t.co/Ae40j8rRkJ
