Monday, July 8, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Questions & Answers about
Building Your Creative Business
In last month's FutureLAB: Start IT! workshop we covered
The Five Essential Tools to bring your product or service to market.
Our 30 Day Challenge kicked off with 40 design entrepreneurs eager to launch their own businesses and sell their products or services.
As a follow-up to our 30 Day Challenge, our IDEA DOJO session is open to previous attendees and newcomers alike who need their business questions answered but don't know who to ask. In our wokshop Lisa Hendrickson--leading Business Strategist and Founder of FutureLAB-- will address your most pressing questions about building your business with a focus on strategy and set-up.
Our session begins with a brief presentation by Lisa Hendrickson,
a working group session to continue generating ideas for your creative endeavor and a networking portion where you can meet other like-minded creative entrepreneurs.
Previous attendees are encouraged to bring their
"5 Pieces of Paper" they learned about in START IT!
and others are welcome to bring an outline of their
business plan to bounce questions off.
We ask that you send in as many of your questions as possible prior to the event to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is an amazing opportunity to get honest feedback,
helpful answers and generous support in building your business.
We hope to see you there!
