Vetruvia: The Experience of Starting a Business in Asheville

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This semester I delved into what it takes to start a business in the flourishing entrepreneurship scene of Asheville, by putting my Asheville education into action and truly trying to start my own business..  This independent study has followed my two business partners and I as we try to start Vetruvia, an art rental business looking to expand the way we experience art, by offering more affordable ways to get local art in your house or business while also providing another stream of income for the artists. We are doing this by offering the ability to rent art. Members will be able to test a piece before they buy, with the cost of rental going towards the purchasing price. Members interested in creating a deeper connection with the art scene, can continuously rotate out new art, keeping their home/business aesthetically fresh and stimulating. In order to get this idea off the ground I have had to write business plans, models, marketing analysis, as well as getting out in the field, and talking to those involved in the local art scene, I have learned so much about the local art scene and what it takes to start a business and would love to share it with you.
