If you’re looking for “the next big Wow,”…take a look.  The start-up world just started to look a whole lot MORE like the arts!

So look around, pick the ideas that get you most excited, and stake your claim.

And if you’ve ever participated in a Kickstarter or Indie-Go Go campaign, go ahead, call yourself an “early adopter.”    It won’t be an embellishment, and I’m not just saying that because I write grant proposals.
