Start-Up Wednesday Workshops
CAPX and MakeWork Present Start-Up Wednesday Workshops
12:00–1:30 p.m.: Lunch provided
Join us for lunch and a series of talks on starting your own company.
Are you an artist/designer/educator/administrator with an idea for a new venture? Come hear from successful entrepreneurs on what it takes to become a creative entrepreneur and learn about a new initiative at SAIC called the MakeWork Challenge.
The MakeWork Challenge is the art school version of a business plan competition. If you are a student or alum of SAIC you are eligible to apply for a spot in the MakeWork Challenge where you can win up to $10,000 to launch your venture.
