Bridging Creativity and Entrepreneurship: The Role of Artistic Thinking in Fostering Innovative Problem Solvers

Nir Hindie The Artian

In a world where innovation is paramount, merging artistic thinking with entrepreneurial drive offers a novel path for developing forward-thinking leaders. This session showcases a unique collaboration between the director of Harvard University’s Lemaan Program for Creativity and Entrepreneurship (LPCE) and the founder of Artian, an organization transforming businesses by harnessing art thinking to spark creativity.
We emphasize not just novel solutions but also the power of art to connect with audiences on an emotional level, addressing complex global challenges like climate change and social injustice. Through LPCE, students gain not only entrepreneurial skills but also learn how to engage deeply with people, drawing on art’s ability to inspire and evoke emotion.
Our discussion will explore how integrating art education with entrepreneurship enriches problem-solving strategies, encouraging risk-taking and innovative thinking. By combining artistic expression and business acumen, we aim to equip entrepreneurs with a comprehensive toolkit that transcends traditional methodologies, fostering a connection that resonates on a human level.
