Blueprint +Co along with Resident Magazine and photographer Udo Spreitzenbarth hosted a cover launch party for Emmy-award-winning ABC reality show Shark Tank and Resident Magazine cover star Daymond John at his new co-working space Blueprint+Co in Times Square on Wednesday, October 18th, 2017.

In his cover interview John, who founded the global fashion brand FUBU in the early 1990s, speaks about building a $6 billion fashion empire, writing his New York Times best-selling book Power of Broke, and the launch of his latest venture Blueprint+Co. “I love the fact that after people read my book, they think to themselves, if he can succeed, then I can too.  When they read about my journey as an entrepreneur, the success and failures, I hope that they feel empowered and share the story with everyone they know.”

Notable guests in attendance: Daymond John, Hillary Latos, Michael Travin, Melissa Kassis, Udo Spreitzenbarth, Dorinda Medley, Ty-Ron Mayes, Angelo David Pisacreta, Roshelle McKinley, Jared Shahid, Leslie Short, Gia Ventola, Zoe Monique Cross, Rebecca Casey, Floresca Isme and Brigette Berry.
