PORTLAND, Maine — Women Standing Together, a community of women dedicated to the advancement of women leaders and entrepreneurs, holds their next meeting, June 13, in Portland.

Dream Local Digital’s Founder and Client Success Officer, Shannon Kinney, selected from a group of more than 50 companies for the opportunity to speak at this event, brings her broad background and experience in the business world and technology startup industry to share with the group.

Dream Local Digital Honey Badger

Dream Local Digital’s culture has its roots in Silicon Valley, growing from Shannon’s experience in other startups over the last two decades, while the Maine-centered employee base and a mission to stay local has spawned a unique and dynamic company environment. With a focus on dedication, passion, and “when you focus on the customer, our team wins,” message, the growing team is made up of “honey badgers,” who take whatever comes their way and make it work.

“We are so honored to have been chosen for this opportunity by the talented leaders of Women Standing Together. It’s been a tremendously valuable experience to benefit from their insights and I’m confident we’ll gain more at our roundtable. Nearly eighty members will be focused on offering their ideas, inspiration, and strategies for growing and scaling our company – and since we will be increasing our staffing, revenue, and client base by 10x in one year we are looking forward to their input!” – Shannon Kinney, Founder, Client Success Officer, Dream Local Digital

Taking established industry success and further expanding partnerships with publishers, media companies, and advertising agencies, offering new revenue streams through digital media marketing and online community management, Dream Local Digital’s client base is slated to grow significantly over the next year. Its strong and rapidly growing customer base, driven by the company’s success and quality service in this space, and further facilitated by its recent injection of funding, has positioned it to scale-up very quickly. The company is currently in talks with several traditional media organizations across the U.S. and continues building its team of honey badgers, growing out from its headquarters in Rockland, Maine.
