Injecting Artists into High-Tech Startups

Injecting Artists into High-Tech Startups

Artists provide enormous value to high-tech enterprises to provoke creativity; break boundaries; solve puzzles; evoke emotion; and shed skin. Few organizations have created the formula for injecting artists into high tech. We’ll discuss the epic success that comes from marrying art with tech! CODAME engages artists and high tech through festivals.  Gray Area fuses the elements of trust and social impact from artists into corporations. Alice Walton, the visionary behind Crystal Bridges sees the fusion between the arts and technology the force that generates positive disruption and fosters innovation. In partnership with the Waltons, the Center for Advancing Innovation is leading the first initiative to systematically unite artists with high tech entrepreneurs. And Shadow's Edge is DOING IT!
