Toni Sikes, Co-Founder and CEO of CODAworx
I will let you in on a little secret: our speaker is pioneering the next big thing in business. Toni Sikes has tapped into the “invisible industry” of public art. Her company, CODAworx has projects valued at more than $4 billion all over the world. CODAworx provides customers a platform to showcase their art projects, engage with other members of the creative community, and earn recognition for collaborations. Toni also founded The Guild, one of the first e-commerce company that brought artists’ works directly to consumer; raising over $520 million from leading venture capital firms nationwide. Develop a greater understanding of storytelling, community, engagement, equity crowdfunding and creativity in business at our lunch with Toni Sikes.

This free event is held in Room 5110 Grainger Hall. Pizza will be served.

Hosted by: Weinert Center for Entrepreneurship, UW-Madison School of Business
