Painting “First Light” by Ron Ukrainetz
At GCCE our core tenets are:
We believe talented entrepreneurs drive wealth creation;
Therefore, we are entrepreneur focused.
We believe cultural entrepreneurs have unique opportunities and needs;
Therefore we are experts in building cultural enterprises.
We believe markets drive profit opportunities;
Therefore we build toward growing cultural markets.
We believe enterprise networks increase innovation and speed to market;
Therefore, we build clusters of cultural enterprises.
We believe all communities are culturally rich;
Therefore, all communities can thrive in the Creative Age…even communities whose economies have historically not been based on human capital, like the communities of Montana I am visiting this week.
Bozeman, Montana- the land of glacially carved valleys, towering granite peaks, and wild trout-filled rivers.
