Entrepreneurship Is: The Social Impacts and Context of Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship Is: The Social Impacts and Context of
Entrepreneurship is an exploration of how entrepreneurship-the
creation of new companies and NGOs-fits into the larger social context
in which these actions take place.

My collaborator (also a UW undergrad) and I are pursuing this line of
inquiry by holding interviews with entrepreneurs and activists,
culminating in short video works shared via an interactive web
experience. In understanding the social context of entrepreneurship,
we will interview  entrepreneurs and activists in centers of
innovation across the world, including Rio de Janeiro, Haifa, and New
Delhi.

We need the help of CARTAH and the DX Arts program so that we can
film our pilot video piece focusing on a Seattle entrepreneur. We will
use this piece to secure funding for the larger project. Of course, we
will give the DX Arts program credit and thanks on our website and in
our video works.
