Grab your pens and notepads, The Creative Class is back for a second time running and the assembly is calling all creatives to join the movement.
Date: Monday, September 23rd to Friday, October 11th, 2019
Entrepreneurs and new creatives across Fashion, Beauty, Media, and Tech will have an opportunity to experience the 15-day intense business training for emerging enterprises in Africa. The Creative Class hosted by The Assembly Hub is designed to accelerate entrepreneurs in the fashion and creative sector with the essential knowledge and tools they require to start and grow a creative enterprise.
Last year’s program had an ace line-up of facilitators and speakers such as; Adenike Ogunlesi, Dr. Ndidi-Nnoli, Banke Kuku, Yoanna “pepper” Chikezie, Wale Ajiboye, Yayaha Maikori, Rukky Ladoja, Claire Idera and Bidemi Zakariyau with deep industry, business, investment, and entrepreneurship experience.
One of the participants from last year’s program stated:
“The Creative Class was such an eye-opening experience for me; there was so much I didn’t know about my business and so much I had the opportunity to learn.”
This year, The Creative Class program will cover the following modules; Creative Enterprise Programme by Nesta | 3D Prototyping by GE Garage | Design & Product Development | Marketing & PR | Digital Skills by Google| Finance & Accounting | Legal & IP | Investment Readiness.
The Creative Class has two pathways:
- ENTR_ is an eight-day market entry program with the aim to empower new market entry businesses with essential knowledge and tools to build and develop their business infrastructure, enabling them to support their creative abilities.
- NXT_ is a seven-day program that aims to nurture African brands, identifying and providing solutions for some of the issues that may be stifling growth in the early-mid stages of running a fashion business.
