The Creative Bridge
CCE builds the Bridge between Passion and Purpose to Make A Creative Entrepreneur’s Dream become Reality.
After 10 years of steady progress, the demand for CCE’s catalytic programs has reached critical mass. We have hosted 5 accelerator cohorts for serious entrepreneurs, 3 boot camps for idea stage creatives, and over 100+ networking events.
In our work with creatives, we see a wide gap between their education and the skills needed for success in business. A connecting bridge is needed. CCE has a passion for people and making connections.
We provide inception stage business training with customized one-on-one mentoring, and seed-stage investments. Our programs bridge this gap and connect a vision with the new skills necessary to grow a business.
The results speak for themselves: CCE is an economic driver for building successful businesses and a strong economy in Winston-Salem, NC, and beyond.
