Presented by: Harvard Innovation Lab

A culturally and artistically vibrant society has a transformational impact on communities. But how can artists or art-supporting entrepreneurs build viable startup solutions to sustain this passion?

In this session, you’ll hear the personal founder journeys of a group of entrepreneurs while they share their insights in launching and building cultural enterprises. Come learn and be inspired to start your own journey from:

Allyson Esposito – Director of Arts & Culture, The Boston Foundation
Kate Gilbert — Executive Director, Now and There
Chris Grimley — Principal, over, under
Brendan Ciecko — Founder & CEO, Cuseum


This session is put together for Harvard students interested in participating in the President’s Innovation Challenge and submitting ideas that help the arts and artist thrive. All other Harvard students are welcome.
