by Natalie Smith, SoDA / November 25, 2013
Eight creative studios, production companies and agencies from around the globe have been selected to join SoDA, taking the organization’s membership to 78 companies with 215 offices in 26 countries. With the election of the organization’s first African member company in this round of voting, SoDA is now represented across six continents, bringing together a wide array of leading digital entrepreneurs and innovators from around the globe. The other new member companies hail from Europe, Asia, Latin America and the U.S.
Membership is by invitation only and criteria includes an exceptional body of work, quality of business operations, and an openness to collaborate and solve key industry issues. More than 100 companies failed to pass the regional committee and all-member votes in this round of new member selection.
SoDA’s aim is to serve as a network and voice for entrepreneurs and innovators around the globe who are creating the future of marketing and digital experiences.
Chris Buettner, SoDA Executive Director, says: “The business of digital is changing so rapidly and includes such a wide range of disciplines that the interests of major brands are best served if experts collaborate rather than act in isolation. Our veteran members have long understood this and they are now being joined by a new class of members who are committed to the cause and eager to engage. This new class is not only diverse from a geographic perspective, but also boasts niche areas of specialization including user experience, digital signage and product development. We are thrilled to welcome them to SoDA and we have no doubt that they will contribute greatly to SoDA’s mission of shaping the future of our industry.”

AIM Group – Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; Nairobi, Kenya
