Presenting Midmorning Social II: Scott Burkholder

Presenting Midmorning Social II: Scott Burkholder

August 2, 2012  |  Events

We're excited to announce that the second installment of our speakers series, Midmorning Social, is ready to go. This time around we're presenting Scott Burkholder, executive director of the Baltimore Love Project and a driving force in the city's arts, culture, and tech communities. The date is set for Thursday, August 23 at 9 am at the Creative Alliance's Marquee Lounge.

Here's a bit more about Scott:

Scott Burkholder grew up in rural Minnesota. He came to Baltimore in 1998 to attend the Johns Hopkins University and received chemical engineer and biomedical engineering degrees in 2002. Following graduation he did 2 years of basic science research at Johns Hopkins. In 2004 he became a full-time entrepreneur operating a high-end residential painting company he formed while in college. In 2008 he was invited by Baltimore mural artist Michael Owen to oversee the business side of the Baltimore Love Project, the largest self initiated public art project Baltimore has ever seen. The combination of art and entrepreneurship has captured Scott's attention. He believes art is powerful with its ability to show the world as it is, and more importantly, as it can be. He promotes art full time in Baltimore and is working to create a social venture capital firm that serves Baltimore's creative community.

He looks forward to sharing the unexpected and unseen places of inspiration and creativity that have manifested in his own conversions and journey.

Scott is an amazingly passionate and thoughtful guy and you won't want to miss what he has to say.

If you're not familiar with Midmorning Social or our goals/reasons, here's the brief summary:

"Midmorning Social is a pretty simple idea at its core: let’s get Baltimore’s technology, arts/culture, and business leaders in front of an audience and task them with talking about where and how they find inspiration. Let’s do it in the AM over coffee. Let’s keep it short and sweet, and let’s send people off into their day with something to discuss and share with their colleagues.

Our goal is to make connections. Professional connections among the attendees, of course, but also connections among ideas. We think that by bringing people together to talk about process and inspiration we can help them improve their thinking and, as a result, their business."

The event is free and open to the public and you are cordially invited.
