    Providing a local Gold Coast and greater region group for you to connect with like-minded professionals - it's a collaborative open forum for ideas and innovation. This is not and never will be linked to a membership that requires the commitment of regular meetings or membership fees


    Providing opportunity for ongoing professional development through the sharing of knowledge, research and opinions.


    Providing a platform for locals to share upcoming events and/or showcase their business - It is not our purpose to sell our services or products in this environment. If at any time there is a special event or unique opportunity you feel would be beneficial for our group, we will be happy to post it once approved.

    [EP24] Share Your Small Business Story | ALKAM ft. Jade Massaad

    In this episode, Sheree sits down with Jade Massaad, Founder of ALKAM, an online fashion movement that seeks to combine fashion, sustainability and affordability.
    Jade shares:

    her experience with being stood down from her full-time job and starting a side hustle in the midst of a pandemic


    the challenges she faced when returning to work post-lockdown and how this inspired her collections


    and her beliefs that design, sustainability and affordability can co-exist harmoniously.

    RESOURCES
    About ALKAM: Jade Massaad founded ALKAM in 2020 as a solution to the lack of affordable, good-quality, and timeless garments that seamlessly fit into one’s lifestyle. She had a burning need for a life-long, conscious wardrobe that answered to the devastating environmental and social impact of the fashion industry – designed with style and comfort in equal measure.
    What began from her living room during the global pandemic with the desire to offer a timeless, unfussy and minimal wardrobe, ALKAM has grown sustainably over the past two years to what it is today: a movement in which design, sustainability and price can co-exist harmoniously.
