Entrepreneurship in Cosplay
Cosplay, by its very nature, is an example of how fans and artists display an entrepreneurial mindset. As fans seek to create and express identity, they create new ideas, new ways of working, and new ways of doing things. Entrepreneurship is about a way of thinking and approaching the world. Profs. Elizabeth Nichols and David Tomczyk will be talking about how cosplay relates to (and trains people in) entrepreneurial thinking. They will talk about how engaging in cosplay sets people for success in all kinds of careers and businesses because of these skills and mentalities.
