Speaker Series Event with Vinita Sud Belani TODAY 12pm!

At the Nexus of Entrepreneurship and Artrepreneurship

October 16, 2019 8:03 AM

Most people have heard the word entrepreneurship, but what exactly is artrepreneurship? Come to one of our Speaker Series events with Vinita Sud Belani where she will talk about her experience as an entrepreneur in the tech world to where she became an artrepreneur. The event will take place on TODAY from 12-1pm at the University Center room 310.

About the Event

Come listen to serial entrepreneur Vinita Sud Belani talk about how her experience as an entrepreneur in the tech world propelled her to become an artrepreneur.  She turned her passion for theatre into a platform for bringing together not just demographically diverse communities, but also the business and the artistic community and the amateur and the professional artists of that community.

Vinita will focus on the importance of clarity and relevance in an organization's mission statement. She will address questions that are just as critical for artrepreneurs as for entrepreneurs to build a successful business.

-  How far up the value chain does one need to go to to build a good product?

-  Are you selling vitamins or painkillers?

Come learn how to build an organization that is agile enough to incorporate on the ground learnings into a strategic vision without impacting the core mission and vision.
