Entrepreneurship Lecture Series

Spring 2018 Entrepreneurship Lecture Series

Entrepreneurship Lecture Series poster

Now in its second year, the School of Art + Design’s Entrepreneurship Lecture Series is a yearlong event that brings well known industry leaders — who also happen to be artists and designers — to campus to share their personal and professional stories of success, and to provide guidance, advice and inspiration to undergrad and graduate students. ELS seeks to help students make the leap from talented artists and designers to financially and professionally successful entrepreneurs. The lecture series was conceived and has been generously funded by School of Art + Design alumnus and successful designer and entrepreneur, Thom McElroy. All ELS lectures are held during regular class times.
