On Wednesday, March 8th, IVY members gathered at SVA Theater for an exclusive salon discussion with Daymond John, the world-renowned founder of FUBU, Shark Tank Investor and serial entrepreneur. Daymond discussed the key tools necessary to build and lead a global brand, sharing insights from his most recent project, blueprint+co, a newly launched coworking space created for like-minded creative executives to bridge the gap between innovators and corporations. Before the talk, members gathered for a welcome reception to enjoy hors d'oeuvres, a selection of wine courtesy of Josh Cellars and cocktails provided by VDKA6100. After closing out the night with a compelling Q&A with the audience, members gathered for a closing cocktail reception and had the opportunity to meet Daymond one-on-one during a special signing of his latest book, The Power of Broke.
