European course in entrepreneurship for the creative industries

There is a new language and a new way of thinking the creative industries.

The new technologies drive new behaviours by consumers and the new forms of financing through venture capital in response to the lack of subsidies impose new rules for a growing sector that is considered strategic.
To develop successful projects with impact on the market is increasingly dependent on factors that entrepreneurs need to know.
CIAKL is an answer to that need with a European course on entrepreneurship for entrepreneurs and creative people who want to turn their projects into reality.
By participating in the course, you can win one of the CIAKL prizes and get an internship in one of the business partners.
