Education – Credit
Attestation of Collegial Studies (AEC) Program Venture Creation in the Creative and Cultural Industries
Creative and cultural entrepreneurs often have to make do with very little support that meets their unique needs as founders of medium to high growth ventures. Many creative individuals are highly skilled in their domains but have fewer of the skills required to start and manage a new venture. This is a credit program offering budding entrepreneurs in the pre-startup and start-up phase of a new venture, a flexible schedule and experiential pedagogy developed to take account of their unique needs as creative entrepreneurs. Multidisciplinary teams will work together to identify opportunities, develop a value proposition, search for and validate a business model that will then be implemented. The program will be launched in the fall of 2015. For more information, please contact Madeleine Bazerghi firstname.lastname@example.org
