Ready, set, book! Our Summer Events Series is now live

We are ecstatic to announce our Summer 2021 Events Series here at Creative Entrepreneurs! This season we’ve curated a host of insightful and meaningful discussions covering topics like how to run a social enterprise, how to build your first tech product (even if coding isn’t your forte) and the art and science of shaping the customer experience.

For each event, our founder Carolyn Dailey will interview creative people on the front lines of building or scaling their businesses. Expect highly personal stories, concrete strategies you can apply to your own business, and handy, digestible tips.

Like always, our latest events programme has been designed with you – our community – in mind. They are perfect for anyone at any stage of their creative business. You’ll leave each session with actionable takeaways you can apply to your business right away, plus you’ll get the opportunity to network with the Creative Entrepreneurs’ community too.

Check out the schedule below. Note that for some events, you’ll need to be a Creative Entrepreneurs member to access them. Our membership offers everything you need to make your creative business grow. You’ll get access to exclusive networking events, our inspiring Founder Files and Masterclasses, our members-only Facebook group and sought-after business tools and products.

Zoom Dive | Building your first tech product, a beginner’s guide

8 JUL 14:00 GMT, Zoom

Founders without experience in technology are reliant upon people with technical skills to create and grow their products. But why does it feel like that knowledge is locked away, kept only for a small group that’s in the know? In this session, we unpack the building blocks to designing your own tech product, even if you don’t have any experience in tech.


Zoom Dive | Alternative models for funding your startup

22 JUL 14:00 GMT, Zoom

In this 60-minute session, Dan Simmons, founder of Propelia, will run through why he decided to launch a ‘record label for ideas’ and how he thinks we should be funding creative businesses.

5 AUG 14:00 GMT, Zoom

This week we meet Phil Askew, a practising coach who helps solopreneurs, companies of one, and start-ups get to the heart of their mission, value, and purpose. All with the view that these pillars should shape and guide your personal brand: including how you lead, your tone of voice and your headshots.

Zoom Dive | The art & science of shaping customer experience
