What does the Creative Enterprise Programme look like?

We captured the Creative Enterprise Programme in Egypt, Philippines, Uganda and Ukraine to show you what to expect.

The Creative Enterprise Programme is a workshop that brings the Creative Enterprise Toolkit to life! Up to 25 creative and social entrepreneurs come together for three intense days to work on their startup microbusinesses.

The workshop is built on design-led foundations and promotes a learn-by-doing approach. The workshop facilitators are masters at creating a safe space for entrepreneurs to test new ideas, give each other feedback and approach challenges from a new perspective. Entrepreneurs practice how to describe their business values, write a vision and mission statement, articulate their USP, create customer personas and design their customer journey, present their elevator pitch, draft a business model canvas and visualise what success means to them.

For nearly ten years, we have partnered with the British Council to support creative and social entrepreneurs around the world in establishing and growing their businesses.

In the past two years alone, November 2016 to November 2018, the Creative Enterprise Programme took place in 36 cities in 20 countries, in seven languages, to more than 1,100 creative and social entrepreneurs.
