ADC StartUP Series: Take The Leap

There’s a revolution brewing in the advertising and design industries. Creative professionals are escaping the cushy confines of Madison Ave for the greener pastures of startup-land.

The Art Directors Club is proud to host its quarterly speaker series, StartUP, to inspire creatives to follow their entrepreneurial passions.

This event is designed to bridge the gap between the creative industries and the startup community. And to connect you with the proper resources to bring your million dollar ideas to life.

Join us on Thursday, July 25th, 2013 from 6-9pm for the next installment of StartUP, and see why these brilliant creative leaders took the leap.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
