Creative Enterprise Programme in Uganda

Creative Enterprise Programme in Uganda

For nearly ten years, we have been working in partnership with the British Council to deliver the Creative Enterprise Programme.

Developed from the Creative Enterprise Toolkit, the programme’s core offer is a three-day capacity-building workshop to support creative and social entrepreneurs in establishing and growing their businesses.

Between November 2016 and November 2019, the programme took place in 27 countries, in seven languages, to more than 2,000 creative entrepreneurs in arts and culture, fashion, handicrafts, digital, publishing, gaming, performance arts and more.

About the workshop

Day 1: You and your idea Participants dissect their personal values, how these relate to the purpose of their business, and visualise the future.

Day 2: Your customers Participants imagine who their customers are, what their customers values are, how to communicate to potential customers and how to ensure their business meets their customers needs.

Day 3: Your business Day three brings the efforts from the previous two days together. Participants explore the key components required to build their own business model canvas.
