It's Time for the Original Entrepreneurs — the Artists — to Step Into the Spotlight w/ Jan Ryan Austinpreneur

    • Management

Think about the starving artist — they’ve been around for centuries. Artists today truly want to be out there. But a lot of times they don't think of themselves as entrepreneurs. They don't have a lot of confidence in their abilities as business people. But they've got some amazing ideas to contribute to the world. That's why Jan Ryan is helping to build a design program at UT Austin that’s based on the core principles of entrepreneurship.I sat down with Jan to talk about how and why she’s building this new program. Jan also talked about her own journey from artist to entrepreneur, why failure is so critical, and how we can keep making strides to support women in entrepreneurship.
