New York City is a melting pot of communities of thinkers and makers. Our “Intro to the ‘X’ Community” event series will give you the inside scoop as well as the tips and tricks you need to break into the respective community.
Have you ever dreamt of creating a successful business, but not known exactly how to do it? Join us this week for an evening that will give you an exclusive opportunity to hear firsthand how three impressive female founders got their innovative and inspiring companies off the proverbial eCommerce ground.
And if that’s not enough to entice you, the event will kick-off with a mini POP-UP SHOP featuring wares from THINX, The Brave Collection, and Slow Factory! Network and enjoy free smoothies from Lulitonix before we break into an intimate panel discussion with these rising eCommerce rockstars.
“You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out ther e on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.'” - Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut
“It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.” - Neil Armstrong, astronaut & moonwalker
“When we look down at the earth from space, we see this amazing, indescribably beautiful planet. It looks like a living, breathing organism. But it also, at the same time, looks extremely fragile … Anybody else who’s ever gone to space says the same thing because it really is striking and it’s really sobering to see this paper-thin layer and to realize that that little paper-thin layer is all that protects every living thing on Earth from death, basically. From the harshness of space.” - Shuttle/ISS astronaut Ron Garan
“We ask a lot of our oceans. Despite their seemingly healthy appearance, the stresses we put on marine animals and coastal regions are taking a huge toll. In many cases, these negative impacts stem from human activity that we can control – or avoid all together,” said David Miller, WWF-Canada’s President and CEO. “Vulnerable marine ecosystems are being jeopardized by overfishing, habitat degradation, marine pollution and warming sea temperatures. On top of this, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing is having a devastating impact on sustainably managed fisheries around the world.”
