On Wednesday August 9th, we had the pleasure of hosting clients, colleagues and members of our Collective to toast the opening of our business at our home in the Columbus Idea Foundry.
Clients from Highlights for Children, The Ohio History Connection and Gunze joined colleagues from The Ohio State University, Resource Ammirati (IBM), Fitch and L Brands along with representatives from Abbott, Day Companies, Nationwide, Smucker's, Jeni's, Car2Go, Abercrombie & Fitch, Battelle, Express, PrintSource, GSW, Grange, Kingmaker's, Zoup, Hatch Partners, Huntington, and Ohio Health. Members of our Collective in attendance included Stacy Buttari of Whitespace, Therese McCaan of Black Purse, Chuck Palmer of ConsumerX and Ken Hewes of Mod Advisors.
Alex Bandar, CEO of the Idea Foundry spoke about the role the makerspace and co-working space plays in revitalizing Franklinton, and in building brands and businesses. Guests toured the Foundry between conversation, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
Thanks to everyone who made it out to toast our new beginning.
