Why entrepreneurs from the creative industries?

Worldwide, the creative industries contribute significantly to growth and jobs – and to the development of new, innovative solutions to the challenges that companies and societies face. Also, traditional industries become more innovative and competitive when collaborating with creative companies or “creatives”, called cross sector innovation. The creative industries contribute to a more dynamic, competitive and innovative society in many ways.

The road from being an entrepreneur to become a growing company is more challenging in the creative industries than for entrepreneurs in any other sectors. All entrepreneurs face challenges in business development, internationalisation and access to finance, but for entrepreneurs from the creative industries, the obstacles for growth are greater. For example, creative entrepreneurs are often perceived as a more risky investment. However, studies on insolvencies have proven otherwise where creative companies do better even in times of crisis. The possibilities for growth, jobs and innovation in the creative industries have just not been realised…yet.
