Mathew choreographs a dance between arts and business
Mathew Heggem started dancing as a child after realizing he wasn’t a good enough singer for the lead parts in the local children’s theater musicals. It was during an inspired performance as The Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland that someone who ran a dance studio offered him some free lessons. He continued to dance through high school and later would get into choreography as well.
In this episode, Mathew and I talk about how his arts side allows him to view business through a different lens. He likes to look at it as he’s participating in acts of creation both in the office and on stage. It was when he realized that both dance and business grow from ideas created by a person, he began to flourish in both worlds. He even went so far as to say, “It’s when I separate the two that things get worse.”
Mathew Heggem is the CEO of SUM Innovation, the Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Neuland Alliance, and a Choreographer and Co-Founder of Left Side Labs.
He graduated from Goucher College with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Dance with emphasis in Choreography and a Minor in Religion. He later attended the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program at Babson College.
