Deans' Cultural Entrepreneurship Challenge Kickoff

Join us for the kickoff of the 2015 Deans’ Cultural Entrepreneurship Challenge! The Challenge calls upon students with an entrepreneurial spirit to develop venture-based solutions that provide the organizational infrastructure necessary for artists and the arts to thrive. Randy Weiner, esteemed American playwright and theatre producer, will give a keynote address sharing insights into the challenges and opportunities associated with starting and growing cultural enterprises.

Students will have the chance to meet like-minded individuals from across the University and within the community to explore ideas, partnerships, and opportunities focused on issues that include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Funding and Audiences
• Broad Cultural Impact and Access
• Artists' Services and Support
• Expanding Horizons

The Deans’ Cultural Entrepreneurship Challenge is Co-sponsored by Dean Nitin Nohria of Harvard Business School, Dean Diana Sorensen of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and Silkroad, a nonprofit arts organization affiliated with Harvard University and led by cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

A variety of workshops and networking events will offer participants numerous opportunities to strengthen their idea, team and ventures throughout the Challenge timeline. More information on programming can be found on the i-lab’s website: www.i-lab.harvard.edu.
