I met Mark Hirsch (CEO of CreativeWorx), several months ago at the NYU Poly Incubator. Mark's start-up is a unique story of corporate sponsored entrepreneurship. I think this is a trend we will see more of in the future.
As large tech companies like Microsoft, Adobe, Google, Oracle, etc.. realize that their size and bureaucracy make it difficult to innovate within the company, they will enable employees to take IP, capital, and support to innovate outside of the company. The following is an interview with Mark.
What is CreativeWorx and How Did The Idea Come About?
CreativeWorx is a new venture that I founded after leaving Adobe. Our mission is to improve the collaboration and workflows between creative professionals and business professionals.
