In the 1970's, Michael Krinsky was a Peterborough based artist selling his stained glass at craft shows. In a few decades, he and his business partners had developed one of the country's largest 'artwear' (printed t-shirt) companies, with viral hits like their 'three wolf moon' shirt, and over 250 employees.
How did they make their art profitable from their base in the Monadnock region? Michael will share his experience of navigating startup struggles, developing effective marketing strategies, and growing while maintaining a commitment to their founding values.
