Organization/institution description (<500 characters)

I've worked with colleagues to establish: DMD Stamford, a bachelor program with concentrations in Motion Animation, Web Design, and Digital Business Strategies. Since 2013, DMD has become one of the largest majors at UConn Stamford. Digital Media CT is a collaborative of higher education institutions working together in support of a talent pipeline in digital media. CoAction Lab is an interdisciplinary unit that delivers digital media solutions to CT-based start-ups in Fairfield County.

 

How do you train, educate or prepare entrepreneurs? (<500 characters)

DMD in Stamford has established a focus on digital media business solutions. Focused skills expand far beyond digital, with Creativity and Innovation, a core component of the program. Regarding DMCT, ConnectNext speaker events and social media campaigns routinely highlight entrepreneurship in Connecticut, and our CoAction Lab program delivers a level of faculty and student expertise in the high demand area of digital media that would be difficult for small start-ups to attain on their own

 

What impact did your program have in 2019? (<500 characters)

DMCT established a collaborative of higher ed institutions to support digital media careers. Participation in the annual summit increased to 330 attendees; this included students from 6 universities, 3 high schools, and over 50 professionals. In total, over 500 students attended DMCT in-person events in 2019. The CoAction Lab issued its first call for applications from CT entrepreneurs and start-ups. In total, 12 applications were received, and 2 companies selected as clients for the 2019 pilot.
