What does entrepreneurship mean?  It is common for people to define entrepreneurship in a narrow way confined to self-employment, seeking maximum profitability.  However a broader understanding sees entrepreneurship as an outlook that produces value of all types based on flexible, innovative and creative efforts.  Our panel discussion group will be examining the practices and contributions of artists, particularly immigrant artists, and how they provide an ideal means to illustrate this view in US society.
