Forget Monty Python: ThinkGlobal Launches Quest for the Holy Grail with Quirky, Funny Social Media Video Series

Move over Monty Python: ThinkGlobal Inc., a B2B trade leads and business video webcasting company, has launched its own “Quest for the Holy Grail,” which includes a series of funny and quirky videos about its effort to drum-up votes for a nationwide contest for entrepreneurs.

“We’re having a lot of fun using everything from Google Earth and the 2014 State of the Union address to footage from the first Apollo moon landing and silent movie clips from Charlie Chaplin,” said Greg Sandler, president of ThinkGlobal. “What’s remarkable is that we’re producing all of this video work in a small office studio with technology that would not have been accessible to us even a few years ago. This is a great example of how any small business can leverage digital video to promote itself.”

ThinkGlobal is one of 32 companies nationwide named regional winners in Comcast’s "Innovations 4 Entrepreneurs" (I4E) program, a national competition for entrepreneurs who are leveraging technology to enhance their business.

Winners were selected based on essays they submitted highlighting their use of technology to enhance the customer or employee experience, and other judging criteria.

The next round of the competition is the public vote, where six businesses will be selected as grand prize winners. Public voting will be open through June 1st, 2014.

"These entrepreneurs have demonstrated a superior ability to utilize technology in their business and, with the help of the I4E program, they now have the opportunity to expand their business to a whole new level," said Terry Connell, senior vice president, Comcast Business.

ThinkGlobal’s videos – including one in which its own president appears in the 2014 State of the Union address – can be viewed on its YouTube channel and on its own website.
