Endeavor's 20th Anniversary Gala
November 2017. New York City, Spring Studios
In November 2017, Empire partnered with Endeavor.org to celebrate their success over the past 20 years leading the high-impact entrepreneurship movement. The gala highlighted Endeavor’s powerful global network of game-changing entrepreneurs and international industry leaders from 30 markets for over 600 attendees.
The evening kicked off at Spring Studios with a cocktail
reception overlooking the heart
of New York City's trendy TriBeCa neighborhood. Guests enjoyed hors d'ouevres and cocktails provided by Pinch Food design while they circulated among exhibits showcasing some of the entrepreneurial ventures their work has facilitated.
Following cocktails, all guests were invited to a seated dinner in the massive, minimalist Studio 3/4. The dinner program included remarks by Board chair, Edgar Bronfman, Jr., and CEO of General Atlantic, William E. Ford, who was honored as an exemplary supporter of high-impact entrepreneurs worldwide. At the conclusion of dinner, guests were treated to a performance by Warner Music artist, NIIA, an American singer, pianist, and songwriter.
Following the dinner program, guests enjoyed an after-party at Endeavor's Scale Up night in the cocktail space now transformed into a nightclub, featuring DJ Hannah Bronfman.
Empire collaborated with the Endeavor team to plan and execute a carefully-orchestrated event, for which every aspect of the design showcased the organization's mission and success stories. Designs included Empire custom exhibits, a timeline wall, furniture fabrications and custom installations that visually represented various Entrepreneurs' inventions and business models.
