About

Are you interested in getting involved in the entertainment industry? Or are you a small business owner looking to take your entrepreneurship to the next level? Then the Entertainment Entrepreneurship educational program series could be for you. It consists of practical money making solutions to becoming successful as an artist, business owner or both. Courses that have been created or are in development include "How to Become a YouTuber," "Online Course Devloper," "How to Create a Campaign" and "Develop a Movie." To stay on top of the evolution of E.E. and to become an Entertainmentite, be sure to sign up for our newsletter.

The Entertainment Entrepreneurship methodologies are being created by filmmaker, university lecturer and online course developer John Yianni Stamas who graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Entrepreneurship and Digital Media from State University of New York, Empire State College. He now lectures at that school being brought in for special workshop assignments. These University seminar and discussion forums are giving birth to the courses.

 

Stamas, with the help of Professor Justin Giordano, is also developing a masters curriculum in Technology for the Arts, based on Stamas' teaching and exploring at SUNY Empire State. Plus, he is co-writing a book on "Music Entrepreneurship USA." with Giordano.
