Longhorn Leaders Unite

Newsletter LBN Manik Raj Nakra

As President of Texas Exes and Board Chair, the official alumni association of the University of Texas, I’ve supported many projects, but one in particular that I am most passionate about is our new Longhorn Business Network. It’s a simple yet effective concept – a network of Longhorn-run businesses connecting and working together to support each other. It starts with a free listing in the LBN Business Directory, along with networking events across the state and other perks.

Last week, I joined fellow Longhorn business owner and artist, Manik Raj Nakra, to co-host a live discussion during a Longhorn Business Network coffee. Like my journey to becoming an artist, Manik began as a bright-eyed UT student, but with a degree in economics. What an interesting start!

Moderated by Texas Exes Business Development Manager, Sara Light, we shared our unique beginnings into the art world and our takes on “The Business of Art.” In this short clip, we discussed the value of becoming your own marketer as an artist, which can be a surprise and challenge for creatives starting off.
