Our Pan-Ukrainian Programme for Young Entrepreneurs – Creative Enterprise Ukraine – would like to invite you to its closing event: Graduation!

In 2018, working jointly with the UK-based innovation agency Nesta, we held nine separate training seminars in the cities of Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa, Dnipro, Zhytomyr and Ivano-Frankivsk where we worked with more than 150 attendees. All our trainees are involved in developing a private business interest or have put together a product concept and business plan for the creative economy sector.

On 21 March 2019 at Kyiv’s Izone, nine Creative Enterprise Ukraine finalists will pitch their projects to a jury in open format in competition for a 55,000 UAH Business Development Prize as well as for private professional mentoring sessions and other awards.

Creative Enterprise Ukraine graduates will be joined by others who have previously completed the programme – over 500 people from all corners of the country! We’re also inviting cultural and creative industry reps and prospective Creative Enterprise Ukraine trainees.

We expect the evening at IZone to result in an unprecedented concentration of creative entrepreneurial spirit and to offer unmatched networking opportunities.

Beside those who will be pitching that night there will be a panel discussion on creative entrepreneurship development in Ukraine and a chance to learn more about the products on offer from our programme graduates. A detailed event programme will be released in the near future.

Admission is free, but seats are limited and…
