The Kinfolk Entrepreneur traces the journeys of creative ideas as they ripen into successful businesses, whether they are established on the strength of a single vision, brought about by the power of a partnership or serve to create communities. Inside, Nathan Williams and the Kinfolk team meet over 40 entrepreneurs who are making business personal.
Featuring inspiring interviews with creative visionaries such as designers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, tastemaker Nina Yashar, architect Joseph Dirand and fashion designer Damir Doma, along with the brains behind industry- leading brands such as Apparatus, Byredo, Gestalten, Hypebeast and MUBI, The Kinfolk Entrepreneur explores how the professional pursuit of meaning and passion can motivate personal success and a balanced quality of life.

Kinfolk founder Nathan Williams:

Becoming a successful entrepreneur extends beyond the strength of one’s ideas and the ability to profit from them.

In the book the issue how work can improve quality of life is explored throughout the week: by helping to foster creativity, fortify relationships and forge new communities. Conversational interviews, timeless portraiture and visual reportage capture the realities and ambitions of today’s creative class and present the idea that meaningful work lies somewhere between the two—in the pursuit of meaning and passion, and the experiences of disappointment and defeat.

JumpStart Inc. founder Gloria Ware:

It takes a village to raise a successful company. The myth of entrepreneurs as individuals who have pulled themselves up by their own bootstraps is changing as more people realize that a good team is what makes a company strong.

The Kinfolk Entrepreneur will be in store starting October 17th, 2017.
