This Creative Launchpad workshop considers the fundamentals of successfully starting a creative business, from the founder’s dream to eventually engaging with clients.
During the workshop, participants will validate their business using a diagnostic approach which covers the main elements for any enterprise and will be the basis on which the original founder’s dream can be continually evaluated and updated over the life of the business.
During the workshop, fundamental stages are introduced through interactive exercises, allowing participants to develop the knowledge and skills they need to easily communicate and present the compelling elements of their own creative business to other participants, businesses, trainers, coaches and those who may influence or finance their future. As a takeaway the diagnostic framework will enable valuable future feedback to be input to the business case as it matures and grows.
Business owners and sole traders, and people engaged in Business Development in innovative and creative entrepreneurs
