Startup Toolkit for Architect Entrepreneurs – Volume 1

Download here:

The to-do list for architecture startups is long. There’s letterhead, logos, business cards, and branding to design. There are systems to put in place to ensure the brand you’re creating can deliver on its promises. Among all this are questions: how are new client’s processed and welcomed? What will you charge? What business structure and revenue model makes the most sense?

All this before you put pen to trace.

Most new businesses cobble together systems ad hoc – on an as needed basis. What if the systems, tools, templates, and worksheets were done for you, available and at the ready when you needed them on day one?

The Architect + Entrepreneur: Startup Toolkit – Volume 1 is the foundational resource every startup practice needs.

What does it include?
The most useful tools, templates, systems and worksheets as curated by Eric Reinholdt, award-winning architect and author of Architect + Entrepreneur. These are the documents Eric created for his residential architecture studio, 30X40 Design Workshop located on Mount Desert Island, Maine.

    I know you might be busy on your job and doing youtube but do you have the time to send me another download file at my email. The link in the description doesn't work for me. It said that it could not found a secure network or ssl error. Dou you have an email account ? Or I could just send my email. Or you could just send me another download link in this comment. I hope I didn't waste your time. Sincerely, Leo

    What? No Revit template? That may be a deal breaker…

    I'm kidding of course. Looks like a great package. I'm considering purchasing just to say thank you.
