Global Creative Business Cup Award


The creative industries are growing sectors that continue to provide more jobs and add increasing value to products and services. Moreover, creative industries have a positive spillover effect on more traditional industries improving growth and innovation. These industries hold a great potential but the creative entrepreneurs often lack insights and business competences needed to realize this potential. That is why there is a need for a competition such as Creative Business Cup that can improve the business skills and the number of successful companies in the creative industries.
