Exciting things were happening at Garage Society this past weekend! In celebration of Dash’s launch of their Tumblr lessons, General Assembly had influential fashion bloggers Elle Lee, JJ Acuna, and Jasmine Smith in-house to answer questions from eager blogging new-bies. These passionate bloggers and techies from across Hong Kong came in and networked for different ideas and designs to improve their blogs. Participants in the workshop learned how to design their own new Tumblr theme, customize their pre-existing blogs, and try their hand at writing some code! They had experts in UX and online development helping them figure out the basics of coding to design their very own themes. They sat for a panel discussion with three of the most influential fashion and design bloggers in Hong Kong. With help from the General Assembly team of experts, participants were able to bring their digital designs and ideas to life! After hours of coding and receiving feedback on their designs, everyone submitted their project results from the day. They had a raffle on the submissions and ten lucky participants walked away with a brand new Native Union Solo Travel Phone, sponsored by Native Union as part of their “We are HK Entrepreneurs” initiative!

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.
