Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

In this Thought Leaders video series, we take a look at where today's game changers find inspiration.

Marc Ecko is the founder of fashion lifestyle brand Eckō Unltd and Complex Media. From painting t-shirts in his parents’ garage to dropping out of pharmacy school to start his business, Ecko has created his own path to entrepreneurship. Now, his venture-capital fund Artists & Instigators is helping new entrepreneurs find their own way. Ecko says despite his success, his route to inspiration remains the same as it was when he was just starting out more than two decades ago. He says he finds ideas during quiet moments doing everyday things like working out or taking a walk at his home in New Jersey. Through Artists & Instigators, Ecko says he hopes to build his own brand of entrepreneurship, democratizing the process of starting a company and integrating the creative class and the business class.
