When Culture talks business

Cultural entrepreneurs are resourceful visionaries, generating revenues from culturally embedded knowledge systems and activities; their innovative applications of traditions to markets result in economically sustainable cultural enterprises. Successful entrepreneurs remain mission driven and market-focused, creating both financial wealth and cultural value. Cultural entrepreneurs are key to cultural diversity and sustainability as they reconcile economic, social, environmental, and cultural values.
