What better day than February 14 to celebrate our love for creative entrepreneurship? Last Tuesday, Adam Huttler and I joined four arts entrepreneurs for a Capitol Hill panel hosted in conjunction with the Congressional Arts Caucus, and in collaboration with Public Knowledge. In addition to Adam, our talented panel consisted of the following entrepreneurs:

  • Sarah Carson, Founder and President of Leota
  • Sriram Emani, Co-Founder and CEO of Raga Labs (and a 2016 recipient of a Fractured Atlas Arts Entrepreneurship Award)
  • Jess Peterson, CEO and Creative Producer of Mighty Oak
  • Erica Taylor, Co-Founding Partner of TINSEL & TWINE

We could tell you what they talked about, or we could show you — our friends at Public Knowledge used Periscope to record the compelling conversation — check it out here. Additionally, we were thrilled to have an engaged audience in attendance, many of whom livetweeted the event using #ArtsEntreLunch. Here are some of the panel insights that were highlighted on Twitter and Instagram:
