Creative Economy Entrepreneurs, Meet the Author!

Come to Galvanize (Golden Triangle), the original Galvanize campus and meet Alice Loy, author of the groundbreaking new book Creative Economy Entrepreneurs: From Startup to Success.

A global tour de force, Creative Economy Entrepreneurs takes readers on a journey through the landscape of breakneck innovation and wild uncertainty that is today's creative industries. From entrepreneurs in Brazilian favelas to founders on Malaysian beaches, creative entrepreneurs are driving unprecedented value in economies. Creative industries entrepreneurs are repurposing bowling alleys in rural North America and 3D printing rechargeable hair dryers in Lagos. They're building new markets, inventing new technologies, and solving the challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Creative Economy Entrepreneurs is the first accessible in-depth introduction to these creative industries entrepreneurs shaping the 21st century. Featuring the stories of disruptive startups across the globe, Creative Economy Entrepreneurs explores and explains why creative industries entrepreneurs are uniquely equipped to tackle a range of problems--including job creation, youth engagement, and economic resilience. Alice is co-founder and CEO of Creative Startups, the leading accelerator for creative companies.
