Business Innovation Center “Innobridge” is developing two innovative training programs under the CreatINNES project.
The Entrepreneurship for Freelancers and Start-ups in the Creative and Cultural Industries programme is aimed at creative practitioners, entrepreneurs and start-up owners. It covers 8 modules that include topics such as generating ideas, developing a project and business plan, obtaining venture capital funding, anticipating strategic growth over time, protecting intellectual and commercial property, and using social media effectively for advertising.
The Creative Thinking for Innovation programme also contains 8 modules aimed at anyone who is not involved in the creative and cultural spheres of work but who wants to learn more about design thinking, e-commerce, creating and promoting your own brand, critical thinking and concept development.
The curriculum material of both programs focuses on best practices, current trends, and practical and relevant case studies. Lessons are concise and clear, and are organized in a way that allows for anytime, anywhere learning. Specially selected examples stimulate learning and offer practical solutions to common problems, and quizzes to check knowledge after each module allow learners to monitor their progress.
The training is open to craftspeople, artists, creatives, and other interested individuals, and anyone can choose which of the two programs (or both) to participate in.
The programs are expected to launch early next year.
