your students are your future.
99% of artists and entrepreneurs flame out within 6 months of graduating, and their schools miss out on alumni stories of entrepreneurship and artistic success. We’ve got two seemingly intractable problems in education. (1) Tens of thousands of art students graduate each year with little to no business know-how. And (2) tens of thousands of business students graduate and hope to start their own business but lack the creativity to differentiate themselves.
These two problems are each other’s solutions. It’s time to pair art and business like never before.
Culture Hustlers unites the narrative power of art to teach the efficacy of business. We bring together schools of business with schools of art, music, theater, composition, architecture, film, fashion and other cultural studies. Artists & entrepreneurs share the same journey: they must go where no one has gone before. All the top business schools use case study, and Culture Hustlers has distilled over 3,500 conversations on entrepreneurship into 50 crucial case studies across 11 industries and 13 topics.

A BUSINESS SCHOOL MADE BY ARTISTS
Millions of self-starters are unsure of how to turn their side hustle into being their own boss. These 12 classes follow the true stories of entrepreneurs discovering their own unique business model. Each class has assigned documentaries and podcasts, along with questions and exercises that build into a full business model.
In 2016, Lucas Spivey built the Mobile Incubator and traveled across 42 states, meeting over 3,000 artists, performers, writers, designers, makers and other entrepreneurs. Their true stories inspired him to create the permanent class field trip called Culture Hustlers, a 100% experiential education. With his BFA in Interdisciplinary Art & Art History, and his MBA in Finance, he's developed experiential education for MIT, Boston Center for the Arts, University of Washington, the Arts & Business Council, and over 100 other institutions.
