Free growth programme for creative businesses comes to Peterborough and Cambridge
Running cohorts in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, and Peterborough, businesses can join for a 12-week programme and benefit from exclusive access to industry leaders, sought-after advice, and investment guidance - all for free.
Creative East’s mission is to connect creative businesses with the resources, experts, and knowledge they need to grow. The Create Growth Programme facilitates a community for local business leaders and a tailored programme of advice, mentoring and industry introductions to help you explore the different growth options available to you.
What’s the catch? There isn’t one. Creative East is proud to run this fully funded, no-strings-attached programme with the sole aim of empowering local creative sector businesses to strive for investment opportunities.
Josh Trett, programme participant and founder of Trett Films, had the following to say about his experience: “Creative East helped us realise that the things we wanted to achieve were actually realistic and gave us the confidence to know that our goals weren’t out of our reach. But it also gave us the knowledge through the mentors and the different workshops to take that next step.
My favourite thing about the programme was the access to the mentors – professionals working in the industry that we’re trying to succeed in. But, also, there’s a social element; every week you get to meet with the same people and get to know the characters behind these businesses.”
