Creative Business Cup turns the spotlight on new entrepreneurial talents in the creative industries in order to motivate, train and develop the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

The global initiative for entrepreneurship and innovation

The purpose of Creative Business Cup is to strengthen the business skills of creative entrepreneurs. The aim is to increase all participating startups’ ability to successfully create a company based on their creative abilities. Creative Business Cup is looking for new and revolutionary business ideas stemming from the creative industries.
