Paul Moore, Director, Start Garden
Since he began his professional career, Paul has found himself prototyping new things to generate social impact. In 2005, he launched a failed startup, Spout.com, with Rick DeVos. Then they launched ArtPrize, 5×5 Night, and Start Garden. As marketing lead on the original ArtPrize team, he midwifed an idea into an event that both enamored and appalled the art world. Quickly, it drew more than 400,000 visitors over 19 days and changed the way the city of Grand Rapids viewed itself. With Start Garden, he has spearheaded its evolution from unorthodox venture fund to a leader in entrepreneur centered economic development. He has a Masters of Design Methods from the Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology. He has a wife and three kids. Two cats. Some fish. A tadpole
