How can we develop businesses, communities, and buildings in a socially and environmentally responsible way?

Focusing Your Vision
The success of your project, business, community, or personal brand depends on your ability to clearly articulate what you’re doing and why it matters. Often as entrepreneurs, we struggle to distill our grand vision down to the core, compelling value proposition - which is critical to fundraising, finding your true audience, and building your brand. Join Kara Alter, brand strategist & startup advisor, for a workshop on how to focus your vision and tell your truest story to the world.
