Creatives network

Creating transnational partnerships

Creative Momentum developed several toolkits for entrepreneurs in the creative sector. The Business Model Toolkit provides useful information for both emerging talents and early stage entrepreneurs and helps them understand the relevance of business models to their own individual needs and contexts. As part of the Creative Steps 2.0 model, Annika Konttaniemi was paired with Sallyann Marron from Ireland. Together they collaborated and worked on joint product development with assistance from the Creative Teams – groups of students with an international and multidisciplinary background.

I saw a great opportunity in this workshop for me to expand my business. At that time, I had already expanded to the South and to the East of Finland, so connecting with Ireland during this international workshop seemed like a great step! The biggest benefit of the Creative Steps 2.0 workshop for my company was definitely the opportunity to connect with other people, work with them & see how they solve, not even business problems, but everything.
