The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) suggests that entrepreneurship is one way to bring young people into the labor market. While 7.6% of the Gen X population and 8.3% of the baby boomers are self-employed, less than 2% of millennials were self-employed in 2014. Millennials will soon represent the largest generation in the United States.

Meet AIGA Seattle's panel of creative entrepreneurs who will share their founder aspirations and experience in standing up a design-led business. You'll meet

• a filmmaker, an early stage founder of Archiviste, building AI learning into a multimedia content search and management platform;
• a co-founder of TONL, a start-up daring to compete with the entrenched stock photo industry; and
• a solo practice designer choosing creative project independence.

The evening is moderated by the female founder of Intentionalist.com, dedicated to celebrating and raising the awareness of underrepresented small businesses in the greater Seattle area.

Enjoy light appetizers + a cash bar.
