Cultural Entrepreneur

Who makes cultural entrepreneurship happen? It could be anyone you walk past on the street but if you talk to them they will say that they are cultural entrepreneurs. These people are the cultural change agents, the visionaries who can organize all forms of capital; essentially they work to generate revenue from the cultural activity that is taking place. Cultural entrepreneurs work to preserve our cultures and make our communities a better place. They image solutions that will have economically sustainable enterprises that build up the lives of the creative producers and consumers of the products.  These people will take the risks, and exploit opportunities that will help better their activity.
Many people have no idea that this type of person exists. We go along thinking that entrepreneurs are one in the same. They are all looking to promote their business and nothing else. We do not see that there are people working to help better the communities we live in. We do not see the cultural aspect of every product and service that is produced from their hard work. If you look around you can see their work throughout the city you live in. From the art and clothing shops downtown to the recycling and compost put out on campuses. Everyone who works to make the community a more sustainable, culturally better place is a Cultural Entrepreneur. Become a cultural entrepreneur and help make your community a better place to live.
