Generator are pleased to be providing an essential masterclass for anyone looking to set up a music or creative-based business in the North East.
Setting up any business is a very exciting yet daunting time so this workshop will give you a good overview of why you should go into business, what you need to do to get things rolling and how to grow.
The days will be broken down into 4 areas:
THINKING – why go self-employed, what makes a great entrepreneur, what does a business person do all day?
STARTING – different types of self-employment, where to get help, business plan versus business canvas
IMPROVING – how to keep customers happy, innovation, sales and marketing, digital marketing
GROWING – how scalable is your business, types of funding, keeping your business lean and mean!
Throughout the day you will get the chance to distil your business ideas down into a Creative Business Canvas, instead of a long, boring business plan!
We will have guest speakers who have recently set up their own music and creative businesses so will get a chance to ask them questions about their experiences.
Places at this event are priced at £79 per place, or FREE OF CHARGE for pre-starts or new creative businesses from the North East of England*, thanks to our ERDF funding.
