Deavor has been an amazing journey thus far. It’s incredible that this dream and vision from a year ago is finally coming to life. I have learned so much about Nashville and its culture and community through dreaming and formulating this idea.
We started to see the need for a co-working space that fit a community that was super passionate, not only about what they do, but helping others get better and become better versions of themselves. A few years ago I started a company called Gear Seven Creative. We adopted the idea of working at a “community table” that group started to grow as fellow creative friends would come work out of our space. We thought it would be great if we could expand this model, after we had been impacted so greatly by the support and experience of our little co-working space. Which began the journey of Deavor…
Deavor has been the combined dream of an incredible team. Deavor would be nowhere without the support and inspiration from our core team. Charles Miller of First Platoon has lead the brand development of Deavor so well through design, copywriting and web development. Through his work, Charles has accurately presented the heart of Deavor. Stephen Mathew and Connor Carroll, great friends and inspirations to myself, have been great partners as well. From night long talks about the our dreams of Deavor, to thinking about the possibilities of helping and creating an incredible community, to day-to-day tasks of building Deavor, our vision relies heavily on them. Last but not least, my wife Mallory, who has supported us this whole year, and endlessly listened to my crazy dreams :). I am truly honored to be a part of such a talented, creative and killer team.
Deavor is a place where ideas can flourish, dreams can come true, and where community makes an impact. This is the whole idea behind Deavor, and I am so excited to see what this place can do. Deavor’s resources to our members are great, but I am so excited about one specific spot. Our studio/multi-purpose room is going to be a unique addition to our space. The ability to allow our members to harness their craft and give them an tool to create, is so important to us. The studio will be used day-to-day as a space for members to rent and use for photography, video, art, events etc… The possibilities are endless, you dream it, you can do it. To have a space that we can host learning experience opportunities, support our members and expand the community of Deavor outside of our walls has been one of our value propositions from day one. This room is so exciting because it is able to be molded into anything we want, a true dream space.
Come experience it, starting in March.
That’s all for now. So excited for the possibilities of Deavor. Let’s create some awesome stuff.
