We have partnered with innovation agency Nesta  in the UK, disseminating their creative business training methodology in more than 20 countries worldwide, helping creative entrepreneurs acquire the knowledge and the skills to strengthen their businesses and/or transform an idea into a sustainable enterprise. 

The core element of the programme is a four-day training. It allows participants to explore their existing businesses or business ideas from the point of finances, customers and development potential. The training is based around Nesta’s Creative Enterprise Toolkit. Training sessions are delivered by Nesta accredited Ukrainian-based facilitators.  

Creative Enterprise Ukraine training participants can access the other two elements of the programme – post-training support for projects and alumni network.
