British Council Creative Enterprise Programme – East Africa 2019

British Council Creative Enterprise Programme – East Africa 2019

Deadline: May 31, 2019

Applications are open for the British Council Creative Enterprise Programme – East Africa 2019. The Creative Enterprise Programme is a four-day practical workshop that equips creative entrepreneurs with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed.

Expert facilitators, as well as local market specialists, will provide face-to-face support to help entrepreneurs explore business ideas, develop their business proposition, and create a business model that suits their hopes and motivations. This interactive programme brings Nesta’s Creative Enterprise Toolkit to life, and uses a mixture of practical exercises and activities that have been designed specifically for the programme.

Through the four days, participants explore key ways to:

  • understand the building blocks that describe and will shape their business opportunity
  • identify and better understand customers, and explore how the business will function and grow
  • visualise the main components of the business and bring together the key elements of a business plan.

Eligibility

All participants of the CEP must:

  • Be a creative business, working in the relevant creative industry – fiction and nonfiction writers, editors, publishers, journalists, screenwriters, scriptwriters, illustrators, graphic novelists, comic artists, playwrights, bloggers and poets
  • Have an already established enterprise or be in the later stages of developing an idea. This is typically a business no more than two years old but can be a more established business wishing to pause and consider their model through the CEP lens
  • Be willing to share their knowledge and experience with the group in an open, supportive peer lead learning environment
  • Come prepared to work on their business/idea, to progress through the programme, considering peer feedback, to strengthen their proposition
  • Be open to supporting fellow participants in developing their idea through providing constructive feedback when appropriate
  • Be available for the full duration of the programme
