There is a growing trend of crossover companies who focus on multiple business models at once. Monocle and Winkreative is just one example, as is Paddy’s company, Frontier, which supports creative exploration through a magazine, design studio, and ventures group. Frontier’s core purpose is to help people take creative risks. As the barriers between professions collapse, the challenge becomes how to establish a firm enough foundation to maintain that core identity as you jump from one field to the next. Paddy Harrington will discuss the ups and downs of Frontier’s ongoing journey, and how finding one’s core purpose will help you expand to other fields with confidence and integrity.
