Event description
We're excited for our fireside chat series on the practical business challenges and opportunities surrounding creative ventures.

About this Event

Every creative project with a business objective has one thing in common. Whether it's a marketing initiative, an innovative product feature, or a brand narrative designed to build a deeper connection with customers and your team, these creative projects all require making intentional use of your marketing resources.

This fireside chat series is being put together in collaboration with AIGA Minnesota and will cover the often overlooked areas of creative industries: the business side of creative projects.

In our first conversation, Garrio Harrison will be discussing the importance of strategic planning with Kurt Schmidt.

We hope to see you there.

Currently, Kurt Schmidt is the President of Foundry, a digital product, and experience agency and hosts a weekly Podcast named the "Schmidt List" where he interviews industry leaders to learn their thoughts on bridging modern management techniques, design thinking, and cutting-edge technology for our ever-increasing “agile” world.
