Creative Enterprise Ukraine

Creative Enterprise Ukraine


Local creative businesses define the future. We aim to support them in Ukraine –— to help their owners switch from creative mode to creative entrepreneur mode. We believe that the more businesspeople know how to work with business models and strategies, the better for Ukrainian economy. 

Creative Enterprise is a four-day training programme to help creative entrepreneurs put their business on the rails. You will determine personal and professional values, as well as the mission and vision of the project, create a consumer profile and business plan, define marketing activities, learn how to manage finances, and work with legal aspects of your business. Our professional facilitator and the Creative Enterprise toolkit will help you with mastering all of that. 


We open calls for Creative Enterprise once a year: at the end of summer or the beginning of autumn. Calls for opportunities are open to the programme’s alumni twice a year. Follow this page or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know when your call opens.

This is for a next level business

Transform creativity into a sustainable business. Our professional facilitator will assist you in testing ideas, coming up with a business model and deciding on how to develop the enterprise further. A structured business will bring profit and investment.

This is for even more opportunities after the programme

Entrepreneurship brings new challenges every day, so we support participants even after the training. Discuss the most troubling issues with experts in two-hour express consultations, work out the next steps for your business in strategic sessions, get the benefit of business mentoring, and consult other entrepreneurs in project groups. When feeling lost, apply for one of these opportunities.

This is for making new contacts that face the same challenges

The other participants are also developing creative enterprises in Ukraine and understand your pain. They are the 20 new friends that will give you advice, support you, share your experience, and offer to work with you. Keep in touch after the programme in our Facebook group for the creative enterprise alumni community

This training will be advantageous for those starting the creative enterprise, whether you have the idea only or you have been working on your business for a while. We welcome professionals working in architecture, publishing and literature, visual arts and photography, design, film, music, performing arts, TV and radio, fashion, crafts, advertising and marketing, museums, galleries and libraries, creative hubs, IT, digital media, and gaming.

This is just the beginning: more opportunities, events and acquaintances are coming.
