On February 19th, I will be speaking as part of the Made in NY x Squarespace series "You're In Good Company." There will be stories from the road, a bit about how the project came together, and some background about the way the partnership program came about. Come join us! Press release below:
The Made in NY Media Center by IFP and Squarespace present "You're in Good Company," a monthly speaker series giving startups and entrepreneurs a peek behind the business strategies of a curated selection of successful Squarespace customers. Squarespace provides the easiest way for anyone to create an exceptional website, using creative tools that power the future of the web.
From January to June, we'll hear from media and technology start-ups about their experiences launching, marketing, financing, and sustaining their businesses. February focuses on creative cities photo journal One of Many. Other participants include peer-to-peer rideshare press darling Lyft; event marketing mavens Tinsel & Twine; and music industry magazine The Manifesto. And, read a recap of the Marketing & Sales tips from our conversation with rapid growth HR startup Namely.
This month, Wesley Verhoeve talks about his exploration of creative communities around the U.S. via his photo essay, One of Many. Uniquely, One of Many also aligns with creative brands as partners for segments of his tour. Verhove is also the co-founder of GNTLMN, a handmade men's accessories and home goods company, as well as of music company Family Records. Hear how Verhove showcases the strength of these small city creative communities, and about financing this project with brand partnership and other non-traditional means.

I've been following arts and culture website It's Nice That for years, and am beyond excited that they did a feature on One of Many. Incredibly kind words, and they feature portraits of various people from the first five cities published, as well as a previously unpublished shot of the lovely Jess Christensen from Denver.
