Dr. Gesa Birnkraut: What Does it Mean to be a Cultural/Social Entrepreneur

Oct. 22, 4 p.m., Nelson Fine Arts Center, 222

Dr. Birnkraut’s talk explores influences on nascent entrepreneurs working in social and cultural fields. Entrepreneurial thinking and approaches are increasingly important to those working in cultural fields, which raises questions regarding how education can enhance these competencies. In the past 15-20 years, social and cultural entrepreneurs have found new ways to define entrepreneurship in its combination with charitable and non-profit causes.
