“Entrepreneurs are the artists of the business world” says Kevin Daum, a theater graduate, entrepreneur and author. In his article for JOURNAL OF BUSINESS STRATEGY, Mr. Daum explains why artists and entrepreneurs are similar and by giving real-life examples of artist-entrepreneurs, he helps his readers to understand what artists and entrepreneurs have in common. Among these he mentioned the following:
- Both entrepreneurs and artist-entrepreneurs “approach the world in an unorthodox manner and exhibit unconventional behavior they consider necessary to unleash the creative flow.”
- Artists and entrepreneurs alike must take a practical approach to the management and development of their enterprises.
- The business start-up process has much in common with arts production, particularly the performance process.
