Fast Company partnership: We’re very pleased to announce a first for us — a partnership with Fast Company as co-presenter of EconSM.

Edward Sussman, president, Mansueto Digital: “We’re thrilled to be working with ContentNext Media to co-present the EconSM event.

The cover of the first issue of Fast Company, published in 1995, contained the mantra ‘Computing is Social.’ We were the first business publication to launch a social network, with the Company of Friends, in November of 1997. Through this conference, our continuing coverage of social media, and the next generation of FastCompany.com set to debut in February, we remain committed to social media.
