The Presidential Precinct partnered with Socialcast to launch The Presidential Precinct Network (PPN), an innovative virtual network that connects emerging leaders with diplomats, scholars, and private sector leaders from around the world, enabling them to share expertise, collaborate on ideas, and find the best solutions to issues associated with nation building.  Socialcast provided thirty thousand dollars worth of capability to the Presidential Precinct in-kind.
