Our peer-to-peer accelerator programme for East London creative entrepreneurs



What could four weeks of dedicated support do for you and your business?

Building on our established programme for creative entrepreneurs, we are delighted to bring you an enhanced Creative++ programme in February 2019, co-designed with creative businesses to give you a unique opportunity to attain the resources, strategies and networks you need to grow and lead your enterprise successfully.

Creative++ builds on our tried and tested approach – connecting local businesses and experts willing to share skills, knowledge and resources – whilst arming you with an individual business blueprint for success (on your terms), and the steps to get there.

A network to support your growth

The programme is only the beginning of your journey with us – like our growing alumni network (brands like Stööki and Heroine London, peer-learning platform Enrol Yourself and creative agency disruptor The Roster), you’ll also have access to Echo’s wider network of 5000+ businesses and professionals.

Weekend sprints to fit around your core hours

The programme is designed to fit around your working week, and will run from 10am – 5pm on Saturdays 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd February 2019.

“Before Creative++, Stööki was in transition and had lost momentum… following the course, the brand is creatively and strategically energised again! We’re fully committed to delivering a new collection and putting together a strong strategy to drive sales and expand the business.” NADIA ABBAS – STÖÖKI

During the four week programme, you’ll get:

  • An individual business growth road-map
  • Guest talks – learn from the highs & lows of other creative businesses
  • Interactive workshops with industry experts to move your marketing, PR, sales funnel and other strategic challenges forward
  • Introductions to experts in customer experience, finance, legals & more for 1:1 support
  • A chance to pitch to an industry panel – receive concrete feedback and bag some Echo prizes
  • A peer network of like-minded people to join you on your business journey
  • Access to the wider Echo network of 5000+ businesses and professionals – tap into valuable skills, assets and expertise – and create champions for your business

And there’s no money involved: our programme is paid for, and powered by, the skills and knowledge shared and connections and collaborations created among our members – learn more
