Doing well by doing good

Created for T-Mobile.

In 2003, David Hessekiel launched Cause Marketing Forum with an innovative mission: he wanted to help businesses and non-profits work together, to "do well by doing good." At the September stop of the iCONIC conference in Boston, he won T-Mobile's Un-leash your Business contest, and his company received a full T-Mobile business package, including ten mobile devices and international access to the network. "This prize comes at a fascinating time in this our company's history, where I'm really looking forward to where are we going to go," said Hessekiel. "Five years from now, I expect our community will be twice as big, and our reliance on digital tools will be twice as great."

We met Hessekiel at the last stop of the 2016 iCONIC tour. iCONIC is a joint creation of CNBC and Inc., and draws together some of the most enterprising small businesses in the nation to ignite conversation and drive innovation.

Hessekiel is thrilled to be the Boston contest winner. "Having this equipment, up-to-date and top-of-the-line, will really help us communicate more frequently and better."
