This June iStrategyLabs embarked on one of its biggest experiments yet. In collaboration with Shiny Heart Ventures, we threw our full weight into producing a 10 day festival called Digital Capital Week. In 3.5 months time, driven purely by word-of-mouth, we spawned a 6,000 person experience that will shape the nations capital for years to come. This will be a 10,000+ person event in 2011. Here are some highlights then a full metrics deck:

5,791 total registrants
13,000 tweets by 2434 people generated
600+ blog posts created about the festival
$125,000+ in pro-bono consulting delivered to local non-profits
