Entrepreneurship Workshop

Bonus Day: SAVVY-U

For the first time in 2017, we offer a special bonus day immediately following the main workshop focused on designing a success plan for YOUR life based on SAVVY lessons.

Bonus Day

Throughout the SAVVY Arts Venture Challenge, participants explore concepts and perspectives crucial to success for artists of all disciplines. Our format includes lessons on innovation, business/career models, marketing, budgeting, fundraising, audience development, etc. Explored through interactive sessions and direct mentorship, skills are put to immediate practice and reinforced within the context of team projects.

For the first time in 2017, we are delighted to introduce SAVVY-U. This optional bonus day—proposed by SAVVY alumni—is for participants to apply the full arsenal of SAVVY lessons directly to their own lives.  Attendees receive additional training and develop an actionable strategic 12-month plan, applying strategies learned directly to projects and dreams back home.

In order to maximize success and accountability, SAVVY-U attendees are eligible to participate in  3-month, 6-month, and 9-month “check up” conference/consulting calls. Enrollment is capped at 24, first come first served. Attendees may work individually or in small groups.

We hope SAVVY-U provides a powerhouse conclusion to an already life-changing experience.
