it all started

over coffee...

...and if you know our founders, Alix Hernandez and Crys Southcote, you're not surprised.

They've known each other for years, originally meeting on Twitter. After running into each other at countless Tweet-ups and events, their relationship consisted of casual 10-20 minute networking soundbites. It was only a few months ago that they had the chance to finally sit down and truly talk. They had no idea their "let's please finally get together" coffee chat would propel them into creating Collective SWAY! While they owe getting out of bed in the morning to delicious coffee, it also continues to be their catalyst for connection, collaboration and creativity.
