We’re excited to announce that CEP III – Music edition – will start in April 2022 and we’re looking for entrepreneurs to join the next batch:
Do you want to be part of a badass production squad and pull off your own music festival? Then here’s your chance to collaborate with other talents from the music biz AND become part of a unique entrepreneurship training at the same time: Join the Creative Entrepreneurship Programme III!
As COVID19 took a massive toll on most companies in the creative industry, this is a great opportunity to get back on your feet and return even stronger. No matter whether you specialize in sound engineering, lights and display, ticketing, visual arts & decor or stage design & set up – we want YOU!
Our programme is designed to grow creative entrepreneurs in Namibia – and this time the grande finale will be to organize your very own music festival. Make sure to not miss out – let’s make the people dance, the sound burst and your business flourish!
CEP II (2021 batch)
After the successful completion of the first batch in 2020, the project was renewed in 2021. It offers a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs in Namibia’s creative industry to nurture and scale their business models with professional help.
Namibia’s creative sector has been identified as one with great potential to create employment and add value to Namibia’s society. However very often, creatives cannot sustain themselves with their products or services alone – during the global pandemic this has become even more difficult.
CEP II aims to help young enterprises grow through business training, mentoring and networking sessions. The programme will cover business development, entrepreneurial self-understanding, design thinking, marketing and customer research, branding, sales, establishing partnerships, legal issues, insurances, finance management and pitching.
The programme focuses on three sections within the creative industry in the following sectors:
• Design: Product & Graphic
• Advertising & Digital Marketing
• Information Communication, Technology Design & Production
