From 30 January – 01 February 2018, the British Council in partnership with Nesta (the UK’s innovation foundation) will deliver the Creative Enterprise Programme to East Africa.
British Council are looking for fashion entrepreneurs from Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda to attend this 3-day training in Kampala, Uganda.
This training will be focusing on fashion entrepreneurs – Fashion Designers, Tailors, Fashion Illustrators, Textile designers, Fashion journalists and Personal Stylists .
The Creative Enterprise Programme is designed to support entrepreneurs who are already in the process of setting up their own creative enterprise. The workshop content and activities are relevant to people whose businesses are up-and-running and those who are in the very early stages.
It’s suitable for people just starting out and for people who have been running a business for a long time, to take a fresh look at their business using new methods.

Be a creative business, working in the fashion industry
- Have an already established enterprise, or be in the later stages of developing an idea. This is typically a business no more than two years old, but can be a more established business wishing to pause and consider their model through the CEP lens
- Be willing to share their knowledge and experience with the group in an open, supportive peer lead learning environment
- Come prepared to work on their business/idea, to progress through the programme, considering peer feedback, to strengthen their proposition
- Be open to supporting your fellow participants in developing their idea through providing constructive feedback when appropriate
- Be available for the full duration of the programme
