At Garage Society we believe imagination — the capacity to create and evolve — is crucial to how we operate, create opportunities for our members, and find new paths to grow.
As the world adapts, problems aren’t getting simpler, with today’s challenges requiring a more creative approach. From childhood, we’ve been taught that creativity is for some people, or that it’s something you lose as you grow older.
Today’s entrepreneurs do not like getting tied down and are inherently drawn towards options that let them progress at their own growth-plan. Personalisation and a sense of creative freedom has picked up the pace and is here to not only rule but also dominate the work culture.
As part of Garage Society’s Well-Being Month, we sat down with Dutch entrepreneur Madelon van de Ven, to learn more about her flourishing plant subscription startup and her mission to get more urbanites to experience the health and well-being benefits of plants.
