Everyday Entrepreneurs

A recent article stated that the evolution of entrepreneurs has gone from Marco Polo to Mark Zuckerberg. Today, we’re seeing a rise in everyday entrepreneurs that are inventing, curating, and creating niche products, communities and services all the time. You don’t have to label yourself an “entrepreneur” to think and act like one. Our panel will talk about this evolution and how it can impact the work we do — for a large corporation or your own business.



Philippa Hughes – Chief Creative Contrarian

Philippa created the Pink Line Project to inspire creative thinking in everyone, to build community and connectivity, and to open portals to art and culture for the culturally curious. Philippa writes about arts and culture in DC and speaks about the power of art and personal choice to transform your life. She established a reputation for creating inventive and collaborative environments in which people who would not normally have the opportunity to interact with each other gather to experience art and culture in alternative and stimulating ways. She has been a leader in the creative and temporary use of vacant, urban space throughout the city.
