CulEnt for Museum Leaders

As I am looking for institutions and other types or organizations working on CulEnt, I came across ‘The Institute for Cultural Entrepreneurship for Museum Leaders’, located in Cooperstone, State of New York, USA (not NY town).

“The award-winning Institute for Cultural Entrepreneurship is an immersion program for mid-career museum, preservation, historic site and other arts and culture professionals designed to introduce business applications and principles of entrepreneurial thinking with the goal of expanding vision and leadership skills.”
