Injecting Artists into High-Tech Startups

March 6, 2020: EVENT UPDATE: SXSW Cancelled


Artists can provide enormous value to high-tech enterprises to provoke creativity; break boundaries; solve puzzles; and evoke emotion. Few organizations have successfully implemented a formula for injecting artists into high tech. We’ll discuss the secret sauce and value add that comes from marrying artists with tech! Our panelists, including CODAME and the Center for Advancing Innovation, engage artists and high tech through their respective initiatives. In partnership with the Walton Family Foundation, the Center for Advancing Innovation is leading the first initiative to systematically unite artists with both government IP and high tech entrepreneurs. CODAME is silicon valley's leading nonprofit engaging artists and tech through festivals!

Join us at SXSW to further explore:

  1. What artists contribute to high-tech startups and why artists are the critical differentiators in high-tech startups
  2. Examples of how artists' input generate engagement and empathy better than startups without artists. Examples will include the Walton Family, Apple
  3. How to systematically unite artists into high-tech startups, the process, methodology and best practices
