Creative Entrepreneurs Academy

We specialise in entrepreneurial training and provide business support for Cultural and Creative Professionals, Businesses and Organisations.

Our programme includes accessible basic business curricula as well as hands-on support throughout the vulnerable stages of setting up and developing a business.

We also help our clients to identify and access local and European funding opportunities.

Our aim is to improve the impact and profitability of Creative Freelancers and SME's through sector specific, practical, results-oriented and engaging entrepreneurial training, coaching and support in accessing funding.

We believe that tailored Entrepreneurial training is a critical element of every successful and sustainable creative career. We are ambassadors for bringing together the two apparently incompatible spheres of business and creativity to create a vibrant, dynamic culture and economy that supports and promotes creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Our aim is to increase the number of creative small businesses in Ireland and Europe and provide them with access to world-class business advice and support in a way that they understand and that will help them succeed.

Our Services:

Entrepreneurial Training

We train Creative Entrepreneurs how to START, DEVELOP and successfully RUN creative businesses. We help Creatives to identify what makes them DIFFERENT and NEEDED to increase their profitability and impact. We strongly believe in EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING which means learning by doing with less theory.

Coaching & Mentoring

Our Coaching and Mentoring services will provide you with EXPERIENCED, INDEPENDENT and PRACTICAL support, in an affordable and convenient way, helping you to find solutions that work for your creative business and allow you to make progress faster and with more focus than you could on your own.

Accessing Funding

We have 16 years of experience in writing and evaluating successful grant proposals for a myriad of Irish and European funding schemes. We specialise in Creative and Cultural funding from H2020, Creative Europe, Europe for Citizens and Erasmus+.  We have also access to all grant databases in Ireland and in the EU.

Check out the presentations from our recent EU Funding Workshop!
