Not only will they be exposed to genuine and helpful advice from existing creative entrepreneurs, but they’ll also have the option to chat and collaborate with other creative people and take part in live webinars to help them grow their businesses.
“Ipswich is home to a lot of untapped talent, and our new website will help individuals to be better equipped for work in our local creative economy.” For futher information, visit the new Ipswich ReCreate website: recreate.eehub.co.uk The Creative Entrepreneurs Programme, also run by the EEHub as part of Ipswich ReCreate, will soon be recruiting for its 2014-15 cohort.
