We have been thrilled to work for the past two years with Innovation Fellow Dae Bogan.  Dae has helped us launch our 2016 Music Innovation Summer Institute, teaches a new class in Music Entrepreneurship for the Music Industry Program, and works with the Center to help work with programs, students, and new Center ventures.  His own work pushes innovation in music distribution, rights, and marketing.  Dae will be rotating out in 2018 -- and we'll be announcing new Fellows soon. 

If you are interested or have an innovator to nominate as an Innovation Fellow, please contact us.
