Check us out in the wild!
Assembly was started in 2019 as a 1-day mini-convention for new and aspiring business owner to meet the people who will help them get their (business) sh*t together. With 12 curated vendors to consult with, 2 informational panel talks and a fun happy hour, this is a comprehensive and unconventional convention. Assembly is the first large event hosted by Design Build Grow and is co-hosted by Sara McCabe.
LET’S TALK ABOUT ANXIETY
For 2 weeks in March, 2019, we interviewed other business owners and entrepreneurs on their experiences with anxiety. The series included written blog post interviews as well as live-chat’s on Instagram. Throughout the series we shared facts, stats and emotional experiences on our feed and in our stories to drive a larger conversation and create more transparency around the things we all feel. We capped off the series with an in-person panel talk with 4 guest speakers and 35 attendees.
From December of 2017 to August of 2018 we hosted one event per month, focusing on a topic related to personal development and entrepreneurship. With the aim to keep these events intimate and conversational, we rented a meditation studio that had an apartment style and lots of cosy seating. This circle-conversation, with guest speakers dotted throughout allowed for deep conversations, an open atmosphere and a rejuvenating evening. The year also included workshops such as Brand Strategy, SEO for Wordpress + Squarespace and Web Design vs. SEO.
Starting in 2017, participants in our LAUNCH workshop were able to design and build their Squarespace website in just one day. We focused on small numbers so that we could spend more time with each attendee reviewing and revamping their sites. Each day included an instructional session on how to use Squarespace, time to build the website with our support and a mini-headshot session so each person had new portraits from Alexa Mazzarello for their website.
