Posted by Creative Portal, 1 year ago

Have you got a new craft business you need support with? Do you need help navigating financial complexities, sharpening presentation skills, or growing your business? Today we launch applications for Crafting Business – a training programme for UK-based makers who are new to business and looking to elevate their skills, funded by Creative Europe

We will cover topics including:

• Business planning

• Market research

• Product development

• Presenting your business

• Financial management

• Funding applications

• Web development skills

This opportunity is for makers who are starting a new business, which is defined by when you started selling, or when you signed up to HMRC. You might be a recent graduate, self-taught, or a maker changing the direction of your business.

We welcome applications from a broad range of backgrounds, demographics and cultures, and will endeavour to create an inclusive programme in which everyone can succeed and flourish.

Apply now with a written or filmed submission. Deadline 31 March 2021.
