Event Recap: The Blueprint Summit 2018 – Powered By: COSIGN, Business Society, & Tekeen

Saturday August 11 marked the seven-year anniversary for COSIGN Magazine, and we celebrated by holding #TheBlueprintSummit and dropping Issue XXIII: The Blueprint Issue. In the past we had done a wide variety of events for #TheCOSIGNExperience, but we always want to stay ahead of the curve, so this year we put on an entrepreneur conference, with the intention of offering out audience (those building their own businesses and brands) insight from successful business people.

We partnered with Tekeen and John Dixon founder of Business Society, and held the event in his beautiful and inspiring venue, aptly named, “The Venue.” Home to multiple businesses, it only made sense that we put entrepreneurs in a space that exudes entrepreneurship.

#TheBlueprintSummit was made up of panels featuring some of the brightest names, business owners and brand makers, from all over the Metroplex, Texas, and as far away as Los Angeles and New York. From Ani Sanyal, founder of Green Room Creative, to our keynote speaker, Everette Taylor, founder of PopSocial and MilliSense, the event we chock full of valuable information, anecdotes and advise from credible and successful people.

This is only the beginning, as we plan on making #TheBlueprintSummit an annual event, and making next summer’s iteration bigger and more in depth. We hope we were able to not only offer information to attendees, but also inspiration, so that we will have a whole new generation of entrepreneurs whose stories we can tell in the near future. The #COSIGNLife is fun and exciting, but its foundation is hard work and strategic planning, and this weekend was yet another example of the #COSIGNLife.
