Lucas Spivey has traveled to all 50 states to build a business school for creators. Born in MN, raised in rural WI, AK, SC, and GA, and living between WA and MA, he’s moved almost every year of his life. In 2016, he scrapped his Ph.D. plans and built the Mobile Incubator - a recording studio inside a ‘57 camper towed by a ‘73 ambulance. He has sat down with thousands of artists, performers, writers, designers, makers, and other entrepreneurs in every state. Their hard-fought wisdom inspired him to forget a Ph.D. and instead found the collaborative school Culture Hustlers. Culture Hustlers is a 12-month cohort that builds a creative business model. In just 4 - 8 hours a month we build one part of a business thru podcasts, documentaries, webinars, one on one coaching, and more. Lucas is also the founder of the experimental art center 17 Cox. Lucas received his BFA in Interdisciplinary Art & Art History, and his MBA in Finance and Accounting. Since 2010, Lucas has pioneered a 100% experiential learning model for thousands of individual creators. He develops educational programs for higher ed including Harvard University, Ringling College of Art & Design, and MIT. Lucas also produces and hosts podcasts, documentaries and photo essays on cultural entrepreneurship for city governments, business incubators, and service organizations like Arts & Business Council, ArtPrize, Artists Thrive, and Artist Inc.
