ThinkHouse Applications Due

May 31, 2016

HQ Raleigh
310 S. Harrington Street Raleigh, NC 27603

The intensive ten-month experience focuses on equipping you with the confidence, competence, knowledge and networks necessary to lead an extraordinary life, build healthy teams, and launch a successful venture. In addition to a strong emphasis on personal leadership development, and team building, the ThinkHouse program is a hands-on boot camp to help you develop a viable product/service and get to revenue. The ThinkHouse, located in historic Boylan Heights, is a residential entrepreneurial development opportunity for seven Fellows chosen through a competitive selection process. While the ThinkHouse will serve as the soulful center of the experience, all Fellows can also work out of HQ Raleigh – a dynamic entrepreneurial co-working space within easy biking distance to the ThinkHouse. Fellows must call the Triangle their primary home for the duration of the fellowship and must be working full-time on their ventures.

They've needed to raise money, find the right band members, grow their fan base, and sell their music. They are growth hacking just like you and me. Don't sleep on this one.

The Power of Story

June 15, 2016

CAM Raleigh
409 West Martin Street, Raleigh NC 27603

For thousands of years people have used stories to share ideas. Today as the amount of information grows, stories become more important than ever. Stories cut through complexity, provide context, and make information persuasive. We are all in the persuasion business. Every person has the power to communicate your brand in ways not possible before social media. Yet too often we get lost in facts and details. Stories help bring brands into focus and make them memorable. This storytelling workshop is designed to help you recognize the elements that make stories powerful so you can frame facts as stories. The workshop will not only help you grow more comfortable as a storyteller, but inspire you to find compelling ways to better bring your organization’s story to life.
