Design Horizons Labs Entrepreneurial Fellow Program Launches Into ActionAlice Crogan | College of Arts & Media Apr 28, 2021
Created in partnership with Creative Startups, a global startup accelerator, the program provides CU Denver students an unparalleled opportunity to develop a new creative venture tackling a pressing social or environmental challenge, establish professional networks, and build leadership skills. Students begin the venture by forming teams and being paired with entrepreneurial mentors who have found success in technology, business, and creative fields.
In November, Design Horizons Fellows Davis Jay-Harris (3D Graphics & Animation) and Cybelle Richeson, (Business) will join Associate Dean Laurie Baefsky and co-founder of Creative Start Ups, Alice Loy, at the international Society for Arts Entrepreneurship Education Conference. Together they will present the session “Designing Disruption,” sharing how cross-disciplinary thinking and entrepreneurial solutions that are fostered by programs such as Design Horizons can address the abundance of social and environmental challenges. Associate Dean Mark Rabideu and Digital Design professor Brain Delevie will also be presenting at the conference.
