Guts to Glory ACE Creative Entrepreneur Speaker Series

  • Your Space Herengracht 407 Amsterdam, 1017BP, Noord Holland Netherlands (map)

On June 13th, The Amsterdam Creative Entrepreneurs (ACE) Collective's will host its second in its new creative entrepreneur speaker series, this time exploring the theme ‘From Guts to Glory!”

As always, attendees are invited to actively participate. This is a storytelling night hosted at the stunning Your Space - a three story canal house on the Herengracht - where over fine wine we’ll hear bold and brave tales.
The goal? For all to leave their “game face” at home and come willing to share their trials and triumphs to inspire others in the creative community along.

- Daphne Gerritse, Founder of Rain Couture -
Daphne is founder of Rain Couture – a unique business concept that, since launching in 2013, has allowed her to experience the ups and downs of being a solopreneur. Daphne will talk us through how launching her own brand has proven to be a big life lesson.
She is a strong female entrepreneur in Amsterdam, having learned to be persistent, the importance in showing guts without being reckless, staying positive, remaining realistic and most importantly being passionate and daring to take risks.
While many in Amsterdam have heard about Rain Couture this is the first time Daphne will be talking about her story as an entrepreneur – it’s a gutsy story with many setbacks, but a glorious one too!

- Ricardo van Loenen, Founder of B. Amsterdam -
Ricardo is co-founder and CEO of B., a platform for growth and workplace innovator. In 2014, he oversaw the launch of B. Amsterdam as well as its significant expansion over the past five years.
