The Creatives Meet Business Experience (CMBXP) is a new kind of conference. We’ve all attended conferences and events where we sit in the room and diligently take notes (or scroll through our twitter feeds), listening to amazing tales of entrepreneurial or creative woe. After the tales of glory and “how I built this” have worn off and you’re sitting on your couch, do you go back through those notes that you worked so hard to take? Be honest, how much have you put into practice from that type of conference? We hear you, that’s why we’re doing something different. We’re not doing panels. We’re creating three days of programming with hands-on, interactive workshops to help you tackle everything in real-time.
We care about three main things: collaboration over competition, helping you become economically sustainable, and expanding your network with fellow creatives. To give you the best experience possible, four programming partners (Austin Learnshop, Creatives Meet Business, General Assembly, and Story Bar) have joined forces to bring you a variety of workshops focusing on the business-side, the artistic side, the marketing side and the storytelling side of being a creative. We’ll also have one-on-one mentorships available, as well as small group mentorship sessions. With nightly happy hours to boot, you won’t want to miss this experience.
You can look forward to 9 learnshops over 3 days, plus the most funnest happy hours you’ve ever been to.
