Creative & Artistic Business Training to help guide you and help you to run a successful creative or artistic practice.
What I AM talking about here is the entrepreneurial skills creatives need to provide fulfilling sustainable careers, as to be honest, the lack of any basic entrepreneurial education taught in art colleges and schools at present is appalling.
CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS ACADEMY bridges two apparently remote poles of human activities – CREATIVITY & BUSINESS to combat unemployment, create new jobs, support development & personal growth.
CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS ACADEMY at the Centre for Creative Practices is the first entrepreneurial offline and online development programme which combines a physical space for desk / office sharing, an incubator programme, and accelerator programme and access to other creatives, funders, mentors, resources for CREATIVES in Ireland helping them to become successful and sustainable entrepreneurs.
Some very different but very practical applications of the Business Model Canvas and how they apply to your business.
The value proposition is central to the overall business model and should form the anchor for all decision-making, operations, and customer engagement. It is more than a set of words; more than a set of marketing messages; it is the framework for how the business aligns its activities and output with its target audience’s needs, to deliver a compelling experience that can ultimately be monetized through an exchange of value.
What are the main differences between Alex Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas and the Lean Canvas by Ash Maurya. Let’s have a look and then later in the series we will look at how you can apply both to your creative business.
What are the origins of the Business Model Canvas? The Business Model Canvas is a strategic management and lean startup template for developing new or documenting existing business models.
So what have we been up to this year? Well we’ve been all over Europe, Ireland, UK, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Denmark and Hungary.
We have met some incredible people doing some incredible things and hopefully the work we have done with them on the entrepreneurial side of their creative business will give them the living conditions they are looking for. We have also worked with educational institutions on helping graduates and post graduates to look at building sustainable careers through working in the creative sector. And now a busy and exciting 2017 awaits us all in CFCP, one that we are looking forward to and on continuing the journey we have been on so far.
The core issue at stake is to identify and design adequate tools enabling students and graduates of creative disciplines to successfully develop their business ideas.
One of the critical tools missing at present in creative education is a business planning model that reflects the specifics of the creative sector. Lets explore this more.
