MIAMI, FL – The New Year is a good time to set goals. The best part is that once you do, you're able to focus and filter out distractions. Successful companies like Google, Intel, and LinkedIn use OKRs (objectives and key results) to manage their time. 

Here's a quick walk-through of how to set goals for your own business.

Venture Hive 2016 Spring Accelerator participant, Asombro Extremo, was covered last week in one of Argentina’s most important daily newspapers: La Nación. Julian Avila and Marcos Amadeo,  Asombro Extremo co-founders, are renown Argentinian illusionists and have received significant attention for their magic and high-profile shows across Latin America. Passion for their craft has allowed them to launch a company that takes technology and elements of magic to create dazzling campaigns for an array of clients. Asombro Extremo's clients are basically a "who's who" of international brands such as Paramount, Unilever, DirecTV, General Motors, Dell, Santander, and Coca-Cola. Their Christmas campaigns for Coca-Cola have gone viral across Argentina (and the region) having been seen millions of times. The “Santa’s Call” campaign won many advertising awards in Latin America and has shown the power of Asombro Extremo's creativity and talent in the advertising world.
 
With such high-profile campaigns having been successfully executed across Argentina, Marcos and Julian are looking forward to new tackling new opportunities abroad.  Asombro Extremo is returning to the United States and will continue marketing and campaign work by using Miami as a base-of-operations. We congratulate Julian and Marcos on their accomplishments in 2016 and look forward to seeing the campaigns that Asombro Extremo will undoubtedly amaze and dazzle us with in 2017 and beyond.
