Tony Cannella is a student in the VCU School of Business’ Entrepreneurship Program, which he credits with teaching him much about how to channel his creativity toward launching a business. “What I love so much about the culture at VCU is that they understand entrepreneurs in the sense that you don’t give them a bunch of worksheets to fill out, don’t structure too much, let them do what they want, how they want to do it, where they want to do it,” he said. “They’re hands-on when they need to be, and hands-off when they don’t. They understand how to support students who have a passion for starting their own company.” Read more about how Cannella started Boardgrab and the role of VCU.
School of Business students are learning to embrace creativity with help from Artist-in-Residence Noah Scalin. This October, he worked with business students to create a portrait of pioneering businesswoman Maggie Walker entirely out of clothing. “It’s great when you can do things like this, where people are literally changing their perspective,” Scalin said. “Just think about how that would change. How you would then see opportunities around you all the time. … What are you missing in your life when you’re walking out in the world? ‘Is there something hidden here that I’m not seeing?’ And certainly in the workplace that [mindset]’s really necessary.”
