Hello Heroes: Welcoming new Heroes in 2013
The sounds and stories that happen across continents, languages and genres in the SoundCloud Community continually move us: it’s amazing to see support and camaraderie flowing back and forth in comments, creativity executed in collaborations, and smaller communities forming as part of the whole.
We want to honor that by recognizing leaders in the community who maintain SoundCloud’s positive spirit and showcase the infinite possibilities for connectivity and collaboration. Say hello to the SoundCloud Heroes: community leaders who connect and inspire.
Whether encouraging sound creators to participate in community-organized projects, or welcoming new members as they make their way around the platform, Heroes are here to help you connect and achieve great things.
We first introduced the Heroes program last February and held an in-person Summit with our first group of ten Heroes in our San Francisco office in April. Over the months, Heroes organized Global Meetup Day, the program grew to include 20 Heroes, shared their tips on collaborating and a focus on community collaborations developed.
Starting this year, we’re excited to announce that Heroes now go global. Please welcome the following new members:
Oliver Sadie (London, UK)
