Community

In an increasingly virtual world, it is more important than ever to connect individuals in ways that provide concrete value.

What is community? It can be defined in any number of ways, it can be virtual or real. All of us are members of many different communities, and successful businesses work to create and foster community. At their best, communities should be supportive, sustainable, and encourage personal expression.
