Beth Arendse, CEO of the SA Creative Industries Incubator, said, “This programme was designed to be both engaging and challenging, introducing the participating delegates to the South African entrepreneurship landscape which they will face on a day-to-day basis.” Facilitator of the programme, Dr. Dawie Bornman, senior lecturer from the Department of Business Management at UP, said, “The aim of the course was on how to empower, develop and build a framework for these artrepreneurs (artists who are entrepreneurs). The programme’s conceptualised framework blends different perspectives from the different creative delegates who participated in the course through experience, research, conversations, interaction and integration. This then serves as the first step towards developing each delegate’s creative idea into a viable entrepreneurial opportunity, and to assist them to foster new co-creation partnerships with other artrepreneurs in other creative sectors.” The programme will continue in 2018. Various short courses such as Thinking Accelerator for Personal Development, Starting My Business Online and in My Own Time, as well as Growing My Business are available on Enterprises UP’s website to aspiring or established entrepreneurs. Those interested can register online for the courses available.
