Need Help Getting Your Creative Business Off the Ground?


ART Venture is on the lookout for candidates for its 2013 programme. Up to 12 entrepreneurs in the creative sector will be awarded a place on the year-long programme, valued at up to $38,000, including specialist coaching and a seed fund pitching process.

BizDojo Auckland resident, Candy Elsmore from ART (Arts Regional Trust):

“As the programme is so bespoke, we are looking for two types of creatives: Those who are more experienced and wanting to take what they do to the next level of success as well those in the early stages of enterprise development who are keen to get off to a strong start. All are creative, entrepreneurial people with ‘fire in their belly’ and great projects that they want to develop further.”

ART Venture brings together the arts, business, education and investment communities to back creative entrepreneurial practitioners, producers and leaders who are keen to contribute to Auckland’s arts, cultural and economic development.

Previous ART Venture participants include BizDojo Co.Space resident Kyra Clarke of Threaded Magazine.
