The HackPack team is back after the holidays, and we thought the best way to kick it off would be to remember the Lucky 7 moments of 2017 and list a few things for you to get excited about in 2018!
We brought journalists over $200,000 in 2017!
In 2018, our goal is to expand this so you all earn at least $750,000 through requests on HackPack.
We grew the community by 50% to 11,000 members in 154 countries.
And in 2018, we’re planning on this number reaching 20,000 in 180 countries.
In 2018, we plan to host 6 Secret Meet-ups on elections, environmentalism, sports and more.
In 2018, we’ll be fully implementing these into the online “Packs” and improving them with your feedback.
This year, we’re launching the subscription portion so you can better manage all of your connections and the transaction system to make it easier to pay and receive payments from clients.
We traveled around the world presenting HackPack at the following great journalism conferences:
We continued our global dash to meet more publishers, explain how HackPack could help them and encourage them to find and work with you!
Overall, 2017 was an exhaustingly fun year, and we’re looking forward to 2018 being the year HackPack flourishes as we connect you during the FIFA World Cup in the summer, then the US mid-term elections in the fall.
Wishing you the best in 2018!
Your HackPack team
