COMMUNITY THROUGH MAKING
Let’s be honest: the idea of a “networking event” doesn’t often elicit joy, but we want to change that for all of us. Paper & Inc. Society hosts networking events that bring together women entrepreneurs and small business owners for mingling and learning—all centered around a crafting project.
Every Paper & Inc. event cultivates meaningful, real conversations about entrepreneurship by giving women the space to create with their hands and share their minds with others.
Our philosophy is rooted in four main ideas:
• Crafting kindles creativity in our professional work
• Meeting new people is easier when we share a common project
• Women have an incredible capacity to teach & learn from one another
• Community is more important than competition
Paper & Inc. is about fostering a comfortable and inspired environment that builds authentic relationships between hardworking ladies who have transformed their passions into businesses. No elevator pitches or artistic ability necessary (we promise).
When you attend you’ll receive:
• The opportunity to connect with women who are experiencing the same joys & challenges you are in your business
• Materials & guidance to screen print
• Candid conversation with other lady bosses about the evening's topic (revealed below)
• A personal welcome from our team
• Sips & bites
We'll provide the materials and guidance to a craft project each gathering.
WELCOME // 5:30pm-6:00pm
Expect a warm welcome from one of the Paper & Inc. ladies—who will also place you at a craft table. After grabbing yourself a beverage, take this time to introduce yourself and your business to your table.
GROUP DISCUSSION // 6:00pm-6:15pm
We’re here to learn and grow—we do that by sharing our own experiences with each other. During this time we’ll do some small group discussion about your business, the challenges you’re facing and the wins you want to celebrate in regards to the evening’s topic.
CRAFTING HOUR // 6:15pm-7:15pm
We'll start making! Every Paper & Inc. event has a hands-on project to exercise that creative brain of yours. We generally try to offer projects that are related to business, but other times we all just want to make something beautiful!
MINGLE // 7:15pm-8:00pm
Now that you have a handful of new friends, you can confidently mingle and meet the other lady bosses in the room! Refresh your drink, settle in, and get inspired by all the awesomeness in one room.
GOODNIGHT // 8:00pm
Go out into the world inspired by all the incredible women you’ve met.
The Paper & Inc. Society's free membership is exclusively for women business owners, and each event has limited space to keep it intimate. Membership is free; however, events may have an attendance fee.
