Bootstrapping Your Passion: Entrepreneurship for Creative Media

A session at SND St. Louis

Friday 30th September, 2011

3:40pm to 4:30pm (CST)

Kick-staring, boot-strapping and entrepreneurship is exploding right now -- there's never been a more exciting time to be creating your own creative media content. Learn how to take an idea, a curiosity, a side project or a personal passion and turn it into a media product that will land you on Jimmy Kimmel Live , taunted by Tosh.0 (any publicity is good publicity, right?) or discussed in newspapers across the country. A menagerie of media-preneurs will discuss their diverse practical experiences on how they turned their passions into 'work' (although it's not work when it's your passion, is it?). The panelists will discuss the nuts and bolts lessons learned, from promotion to grant-writing to finding financial and life balance, and how to do it without losing control of your vision when creating new media, books, film and web ventures.
