A Review and Overview of NewsWatch TV

The first time Avanca worked with NewsWatch was to help launch their crowdfunding project; NewsWatch was a major contributor to the success of the Avanca Indiegogo campaign, where more than 29 times their original goal was met in the 30 day period. After working with NewsWatch, it was evident that they were one of the main reasons the project was a success.
