Fashion Entrepreneur Spreads Message of Independence Through Facebook Fan Engagement – Enlists Big Names to Help

Middlebury, Connecticut – UNLTD Timepieces by Marc Ecko continues to deliver exclusive live and interactive chats with relevant thought leaders, entrepreneurs and cultural icons. The next Ecko Time Chamber will be on Wednesday October 12th at 3PM EST with Paul Budnitz – author, filmmaker, product designer and entrepreneur.

Budnitz is well known as the founder of Kidrobot, the world’s premiere creator of art toys, and as the designer of Paul Budnitz Bicycles. More than a dozen of his toys are featured in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art.

The “Ecko Time Chamber” is a medium for live video streaming direct from Ecko Timepiece’s Facebook page to its fans. Participants have the opportunity to engage in conversation with today’s business leaders, artists and entrepreneurs focusing on their work and thoughts on maintaining indie street cred.

We think this is a cool and innovative way to encourage others to get out and pursue their passions, by letting them interact with others who have.”
