“The Creative Entrepreneur”

  • The Creative Entrepreneur
DATE & TIME: 9:30am - 4:00pm EDT April 4, 2019

Through the support of Kathleen O’Grady and the O’Grady Foundation, Marymount Manhattan College’s CityEdge program is pleased to be partnering with New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) to present “The Creative Entrepreneur Program,” a one-day workshop designed to provide artists and creative individuals access to entrepreneurial tools for their practices and arts businesses. 

Geared towards nurturing a network and community amongst participants, the program offers interactive sessions covering a broad range of topics that artists and creative entrepreneurs need to consider when developing their business models. Touching upon key principles of sustainability in topics such as strategic planning, fundraising, and marketing, participants will be guided through the Business Model Canvas, a flexible and dynamic business model plan, which will provide a blueprint for their future goals. In addition to support from NYFA, guest experts will provide insights into key elements of sustainability through marketing and fundraising sessions to further support the participants’ goals.

This program is open to MMC Juniors and Seniors who are artists, as well as to other creative students who may not identify as artists (such as designers and social entrepreneurs).
