Announcing a new Meetup for Chicago Young Architects Forum!

What: Architects & Beyond II

When: Thursday, April 29,[masked]:00 PM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Our first Architects & Beyond event brought to you architects that used their skillsets and built a creative and successful business outside of the architecture arena. Architects & Beyond II will focus on architects that left the corporate world to start their own practice and developed their skillsets in the various disciplines necessary to managing, promoting and growing a successful business. Hear from young firm around the city their story on how they started their practice, their struggles and successes, business /client generating strategies, vital business resources for growing their practice, how they set themselves apart in the marketplace and lessons learned along the way. Expand your understanding of what it means to start and run an Architecture Business and the various hats business owners wear in marketing, running and growing a successful business.
Come prepared with a pad and pen as you will hear some key strategies that these individuals employed in order to turn themselves into valuable assets and gain recognition on a wide scale. Be ready to turn your focus back to you and identify your own strengths to create your own success story, but not before you take the time to gain at least 3 new connections before you leave from this event.
