Entreprendre: ‘to undertake’

I had a really fun interview on Tuesday night with Startup Kitchen about the project I’m crowdfunding for through 21inc: Client-generated, creative hallways spaces.  They do really neat work profiling people engaging in entrepreneurial activities in the region, and I honoured to have been interviewed.  You can check out their work here.

We had a chat about the motivation behind the prohect – that art is empowering – and the crowdfunding approach.  While preparing for the interview, I decided to look up the etymology of entrepreneurship.  Wikipedia tells me that the root is from the French word ‘entreprendre’ – to undertake.  Makes sense, though I never made the connection.

I’m excited to undertake this creative project – it’s definitely a new undertaking for me.  I’m hoping the crowdfunding will help me a buy a kit of supplies so that I can do a project of this nature with other organizations around the province.  Please check out my project, http://www.indiegogo.com/artempowers, and consider donating!
