The brand promise is to service curiosity and to help provide a sense of belonging in one of America’s iconic cities.
ProjectFresh was founded in 2002 as a platform to launch projects and companies that have a shared set of goals:
- To galvanize community and to promote cross-pollination.
- To inspire and facilitate personal and cultural growth.
- To explore how new technologies impact society.
We achieve these goals by designing experiences that mix disciplines, such as Mindshare LA; bringing together people with diverse skills to create unique companies like Syyn Labs; or twisting together the unexpected, as in the charitable-meets-public-improv exploits of The Tuxedo Tyrants.
