Why Build a Creative Ecosystem?
After developing and hosting 8 accelerators for creative businesses, 6 boot camps for idea stage creatives, and over 100+ networking events, it is clear the need for CCE still exists.
As we work with creatives, we see that a divide exists between their artistic training, and the skills needed for success in business.
That bridge is missing.
We have a passion for people and making connections.
Our inception stage business training along with customized on- on-one mentoring enables creative entrepreneurs to cross that divide and engage in business building.
The results are that CCE enables creatives to launch sustainable businesses. Our work has become an economic driver for building a strong economy in Winston-Salem, NC, and beyond.
