Former BBC Dragon launches School for Creative Startups

School for Creative Startups

We had the chance to rub shoulders with a former BBC Dragon a few weeks ago at Artsmart run by University of the Arts London and got talking about a new programme that is being launched to help creatives start their own business.

School for Creative Startups is an innovative one-year programme for creative people, with unique ideas, wishing to start a successful new business. The aim of the programme is to teach the critical skills that new creative businesses need to succeed and to provide support throughout the vulnerable first year of business.

Led by Doug Richard, School for Creative Startups will provide accelerated business training that helps entrepreneurs launch more successful startups and run more successful businesses. Their face to face and online instruction covers topics like how to start a business, how to find investors, how to implement fast, cost-effective marketing strategies, and how to scale a business safely.

The aim is to increase the number of creative small businesses in the UK and provide them with access to world class business advice to help them succeed. If you want to findĀ out more about the course, including the mentoring programme, an FAQ and the online application form here www.schoolforstartups.co.uk/creative.

School for Startups have also posted a project on Concept Cupboard that closes on Thursday. To take a look and submit your idea go to the main Concept Cupboard site.
