Jannik Roth

MD, Planisphere

For some time I’d been looking for an entrepreneurs' programme that offered a combination of advice, networks and meaningful connections. What I wasn’t expecting to find was a bespoke programme that connected the creative industries to practical business acumen. I have found Creative Entrepreneurs to be essential in collecting advice, guidance and support and all is delivered with exceptional value, kindness and the beaming face of Carolyn at the monthly members' meetings. I have utilised the online training, monthly meet ups and discounts, making the membership fee feel like a steal.

Creative Entrepreneurs has had a massive impact on our company - we found our first investor through them, it doesn’t get more life-changing than that.

Nick Gubbins

Founder, Easel

I think the types of speakers CE gets in are really top-notch, the type you wouldn't necessarily see at any other entrepreneurship event.

Who can join Creative Entrepreneurs?

Anybody and everybody. You don’t need to have started a business to join – though it will probably be more interesting if you’re at least thinking about it. And we don’t have a defined list of creative roles or company types, so if you feel like you’d fit in, you surely will.

We also welcome members from around the world, though at present, live, virtual events are generally scheduled for a UK/Europe audience.

How did you come to exist?

Until now, the creative world didn’t have a go-to place for aspiring entrepreneurs. Without the support of like-minded people as well as business experts who speak your language, it’s hard to know what’s right or wrong, or even what’s possible. Starting your own business can be scary and isolating and many creative people get disheartened.

Our founder, Carolyn Dailey, wrestled with this exact problem. After a 20-year career in film, TV and journalism, she set up a creative business herself but quickly learned how little she knew about the startup business side of things. Carolyn realised there must be thousands of people in the creative sector in her same position. So she decided to do something about it.

That’s why Creative Entrepreneurs isn’t just a membership – it’s a movement.
