I’ve Got 99 Problems But a Pitch Ain’t One: What Entrepreneurs Can Learn From Rap Music | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It is an exciting time for both rap and startups. Both of these cultural forces have boomed in popularity over the last two decades: demand for rap music and entrepreneurship are at all-time highs. The change in tide for both indicates a change in attitude of the new millennia. The current generation of young people that are driving our culture and shaping our economic future resonate with the values inherent in both rap and startups: innovation, a healthy sense of risk, and the power of community.

Rap music is one of the few genres that embraces business principles. When was the last time you heard an opera singer, jazz guitarist, or dubstep producer talk about the business of what they do in their art? Rappers, however, talk about this topic all the time.

Find out what you can learn from rap music from Cam Houser, CEO of 3DayStartup
