Drew McManus is the Principal of Venture Industries Online
but don’t let that title fool you into thinking he’s just a tech geek. He brings 20 years of global broad-based arts consulting experience to the table and helps clients break the cycle of choosing one-size-fits-none solutions and instead, deliver an option that allows them get ahead of the tech curve instead of trying to catch up by going slower.
With the vision of legacy support strategy and the delights of creative insights, his mission is to deliver a sophisticated next generation technology designed especially for our business. The first step in that journey began in 2010 when he released The Venture Platform
, a purpose-designed managed website development solution designed especially for arts organizations and artists.
His expertise spans across many different sectors and he has been a featured speaker at dozens of arts conference and has hundreds of mentions in outlets from the New York Times through The Chronicle of Philanthropy. For fun, he writes a daily blog
about the orchestra business, provides a platform
for arts insiders to speak their mind, leads a team of intrepid arts pros to hack
the arts, and loves a good coffee drink.
