Culture and Creativity Sectors’ Entrepreneurship Empowerment in the Digital Era


EU-Programme: Erasmus+, KA2, Strategic Partnerships for Adult Education
Coordination: Marketmentoro Ltd (Cyprus)

Duration: March 2021 – February 2023


ENVISION is a project aiming to develop new and enhance already existing entrepreneurship skills and competencies of Culture and Creativity Sectors’ (CSS) entrepreneurs and stakeholders. The CCS are among the most severely struck by the pandemic consequences, and there is a need for inciting their recovery and building their resilience to withstand such shocks.

The ENVISION digital accelerator platform which will be built will provide cultural entrepreneurs with consulting services, as well as an appropriate digital space for presenting their work/projects, and will stimulate creativity and encourage all existing potential in the CCS. The provision of this digital space will offer cultural entrepreneurs and start-uppers the possibility to exchange knowledge and new/innovative practices, and the opportunity to become members of an extended (digital) CCS community and network.

The project will be delivered through 5 Intellectual Outputs, namely:

1) Mapping the needs and requirements of the CSS in the partner countries

2) Development of the online accelerating platform for CCS stakeholders

3) Content development for an e-training toolkit of consulting & mentoring services for cultural entrepreneurs

4) Implementation of a cultural Hackathon event / Pilot Implementation

5) Design & development of a Crowdfunding mechanism for cultural entrepreneurs
