The Entrepreneurship Question

This panel discussion focuses on the state of entrepreneurship within the architecture profession. As designers, students are asked to explore ideas, solve problems, invent new systems and question methods – but rarely are they taught how to manage money and run their own business. Now that “start-up” culture has become mainstream, architecture and design students must learn how to become entrepreneurs.

Panelists include:
• Quilian Riano, Founder and Principal of DSGN AGNC
• Peggy Deamer, Principal at Peggy Deamer and Assistant Dean and Professor of Architecture at Yale University
• George Valdes (M.Arch ‘12), VP Product at IrisVR, Inc.
• Masako Ikegami, Co-founder of Designers Assembly
• Manuel Shvartzberg, (Moderator) GSAPP Ph.D. candidate
