Overview

Creativity & Entrepreneurship will help you tap into your inner creativity and learn how to leverage it for career development or business innovation.

The course approaches entrepreneurship as a creative process, a fundamental human instinct that we all possess and can unlock. Creativity & Entrepreneurship applies concepts from the creative and musical creation process, such as observing, prototyping, iterating and embracing failure, as a means of guiding you through the concept of thinking like a startup. You will develop the basic mindset, knowledge, and insights required to pursue an entrepreneurial career, whether as the steward of your own career or as the founder of a new business in any field.

Creativity & Entrepreneurship is about the side of entrepreneurship you won’t learn at a business school but, instead, in the music studio.

What you’ll learn:

How to approach your career or startup as if learning a musical instrument
Why entrepreneurship, like creativity, is something we all possess
How to apply “the musician mindset” as means to collaboration and creative problem solving
Why songwriting is a perfect parallel to career and product development
Why there’s more to entrepreneurship than business plans and spreadsheets much like there’s more to music than scales and lead sheets
