The Impact of the Creative Economy

In her article, Impact Investing in the Creative Economy Today, Upstart Co-Lab Founding Partner Laura Callanan writes, “The creative economy is not only one of the most rapidly growing sectors of the world economy, it is also highly transformative in terms of income generation, job creation, and export earnings. But opportunities are often unevenly distributed and, unless efforts are made, the environmental toll of this growth can be severe. There is the chance now – before the sector grows even larger – to shape the creative economy to be more inclusive and sustainable.”

In this live, virtual fireside chat and audience Q&A, Impact Entrepreneur’s Laurie Lane-Zucker welcomes Laura Callanan to discuss the important role that the Creative Economy has in inspiring transformational change and creating impactful benefits across a wide geography of economic sectors, such as Ethical Fashion, Sustainable Food, Social Impact Media, and other creative businesses.
