Nesta Creative Enterprise Programme
For nearly ten years, the British Council has been working with Nesta to deliver the Creative Enterprise Programme. In collaboration with Regional Development Agencies, British Council Turkey has delivered creative enterprise training in eight cities for over 200 emerging creative entrepreneurs between 2014 and 2016.
In late 2016, the Creative Enterprise Programme underwent a major redesign and we are delighted to partner with IstasyonTEDU and ATÖLYE to bring the new Nesta Creative Enterprise Programme to Ankara and Istanbul in October and November 2018 respectively.
About the Programme
The Creative Enterprise Programme is a three-day practical workshop to help creative entrepreneurs turn their business ideas into reality. Over the three days participants will learn the key aspects of setting up and running a creative business.
The workshop is led by a Creative Enterprise Programme associate (and creative business entrepreneur in their own right) and features local guests and business experts. The associate will provide the support to help creative entrepreneurs explore their business ideas, develop their business proposition, and create a business model that suits their hopes and motivations.
The Creative Enterprise Programme has been developed by Nesta, the UK’s innovation foundation, and is delivered in partnership with the British Council. It brings Nesta’s Creative Enterprise Toolkit to life, and uses a mixture practical exercises and activities that have been designed specifically for a workshop environment.
The Creative Enterprise Toolkit is available to download for free and has been translated into Turkish.
