An Important Note: Strivers' Row Is For You
As we head into the new year, I want to reiterate that Strivers' Row is a platform to celebrate you and to promote your work and brands. It is vital to me that you all know that. Be assured that all of our outlets and events are yours to tap into, to extend your reach.
Newsletters - There will be two options for those who subscribe to the Strivers' Row mailing list: a weekly edition that delivers each feature to the subscriber's inbox as soon as it is released, along with Striver updates and a monthly edition for those who prefer less frequent contact that rolls up each cohort.
Instagram - I will be working diligently to grow the Instagram following for Strivers' Row and it is a valuable tool that you all can use for promotion.
Submitting the form found on this page is the ONLY way to secure promotion via newsletters and Instagram.
Events - I am open to integrating promotion into Strivers' Row events. We will have to be careful of ensuring that the execution is at the least a complement to the event and aim for it to be a true enhancement. I will give you all as much advance notice as I possibly can of events so that you can 1. hold the date/time on your busy calendar and 2. provide ample time for working through a promotional execution idea and solidifying logistics.
SAVE THE DATE: The Strivers' Mixer - Thursday, January 18th
New York's young, Black and doing it will take over Delilah in LES for Strivers' Row's first public event. The mixer will be from 5 pm - 10 pm with happy hour specials from 5 pm - 8 pm ($6 beers, $7 wine, $8 well cocktails, $10 food items). We'll have a DJ to set the right vibe. Tickets go on sale on Monday, January 1st starting at $5. A limited number of tickets will be reserved for purchase at the door.
Please confirm your attendance via email ASAP so that you can be added to the host committee displayed on the event flyer. Whether you are able to attend or not, I would sincerely appreciate any sharing of the event that you can do. I want it be a showing of our collective ability to bring people together in positivity.
Per the above regarding promotion, please let me know as soon as possible if you'd like to vend or do any other promotional activities at the event.

Nomination Campaign Launching January 8th
I go through a few different avenues to find candidates to invite to join Strivers' Row, but I will kick the year off with a strong push the public to submit nominations. I'd like to place an emphasis on people in professional/corporate fields, who are generally harder for me to uncover than creatives and entrepreneurs, but all are welcome! Please fill me in on anyone you think would be great to join the fold and share details of the campaign.
