Introduction

For many Creative Freelancer employment is not an option or also sometimes just a distant dream. Whatever creative business you are planning to set up, running or willing to take to the next level there is never enough time in our daily life to sit down, ask ourselves all necessary questions, do the thinking and plan out all necessary steps.
 
Planning and working out the backbone of your creative business is often make or brake and will save you mountains of frustration and disappointment. 

Course Overview

This courses focuses on starting, growing and sustaining your creative business – planning the strategy for development, growth and the necessary steps you can take to build a sustainable career.  This all takes place in an inspiring, creative and relaxed online environment!

We will spend working on our Creative Business Model Canvas – the visual alternative to the boring business plan which we have developed and based on the business model canvas developed by Alex Osterwalder and the Lean Business Canvas developed by Ash Maurya.

This course is extremely beneficial; it’ll help you to answer all your strategic questions and to define the backbone of your creative business. It helps you to prepare a smart plan for the short, middle and also the long term perspective.

We will answer the 4 questions that every creative business needs to answer: Why – What – How – Who; We will look at your vision for the future and the value propositions that you are basing your creative business around but critically we will ask, who are you? why you do what you do, your motivation and much more…

We will lead the whole process and provide you with the tools and feedback you need. You will learn the newest entrepreneurial techniques and discuss your ideas and challenges with us and a small group of other Creatives who are working on developing their own creative endeavours.

The peer-to-peer interaction is invaluable. The participants come from different creative and artistic backgrounds but have multitude of experiences, contacts and ideas and are always happy to share.

All training at our Creative Entrepreneurs Academy is experience-based learning run by Creatives for Creatives. We combine the unique set of Professional and Entrepreneurial Skills we recommend for creatives of all genres as the best tool for establish a sustainable practice. It’s a steep way but we will do our best to help you to get where you want to be, clearly and efficiently.
