Announcing a new Meetup for Chicago Young Architects Forum!

What: Architects & Beyond II

When: Tuesday, April 27,[masked]:00 PM

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

Architects & Beyond I brought to you architects that used their skillsets and vision to identify a nitch in the marketplace and to build a creative and successful business outside of the architecture arena.

Architects & Beyond II will focus on various size and scope architecture firms that have managed to thrive even during this tough economy.

Froelich Kim Architecture
Studio 2a
Travis Metalshop
Valerio Dewalt Train

Hear the story of these Chicago firms on how they started their practice and the lessons they learned through struggles and successes. Learn from them about the important skill-sets they developed in various disciplines necessary to managing, promoting and growing a successful business. Expand your understanding of what it means to start and run an Architecture practice, how to establish, maintain and grow exponentially client relationships.

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.


6:00 - 6:30 Networking & Cheering
6:30 - 8:30 Presentations + Q&A
8:30 - 10:30 Networking

The intent of these series is to help you on your way to entreprenurship or better business develpment skills.
