Creative enterprise

We’re helping to build sustainable businesses in the creative and cultural industries worldwide, sharing our knowledge and experience through skills workshops, mentoring and peer networks.

A huge number of creative companies around the world are microenterprises with fewer than 10 employees. Often run by people of different ages, backgrounds and genders than those that dominate more traditional sectors. Many of these businesses also have a significant social impact.

But many of these companies lack formal business skills, professional networks and peer networks. We work with to bring them these skills, so they can build strong and sustainable creative enterprises.
