Our Story

Established in 2016, Grind Atelier is the first branding and marketing school in Québec. Its mission is to teach entrepreneurs, help them conquer solitude, support their development, contribute to their lifestyle and their entrepreneurial journey. Combining 20 years experience, our co-founders Lorena Rossi and Marjorie Joasil teamed up with leading educators in the industry to offer entrepreneurs small intimate classes in a creative setting. Suitable to their busy schedules, beginner to advanced classes are available in both English and French. Inspired by today’s trends, Grind Atelier’s lean approach allows entrepreneurs to find quick solutions to attract clients without breaking their budget. Students can learn how to adjust the look and feel of their brand as well as improving their quality of life. Soon available in online classes, the human centred school allows them to build long-term relationships between their clientele and brands in an independent, fast and simple way.
