CBC x Decoded Fashion

The creative industries are fast-expanding sectors – in the UK, it’s estimated that creative industries add almost £90bn a year to the country’s economy – so it’s important that burgeoning entrepreneurs working in creative fields receive adequate support and insight to achieve their potential. This year, Decoded Fashion have teamed up with the Creative Business Cup to show support for it’s exciting network of innovative entrepreneurs, investors and global markets.

Why sign up for Creative Business Cup? 

Hosted by The Global Entrepreneurship Network in the UK, Creative Business Cup brings together a community of dynamic UK-based businesses, and encourages them to showcase their offerings to a global audience. Creative Business Cup hosts 70 national finals to seek out the best creative entrepreneurs around the world. The best talent from each country is then able to progress to CBC’s Global Finals later in the year. 

Despite the fact that the creative industries are constantly growing, providing more jobs, adding value to an array of products and services, and having a positive spillover effect on more ‘traditional’ industries, creative entrepreneurs are often seen as a more risky investment as they occasionally lack the insights and business competencies needed to tap into their true potential. Creative Business Cup aims to combat any doubts creative industry professionals may have – so, whether you’re already working in the creative industries, or are just getting started with a new business, the support provided by CBC and The Global Entrepreneurship Network can offer you access to high-caliber industry talent and potential investment opportunities, as well as encouraging you to foster new relationships within its global pool of creative talent.

How does Creative Business Cup work? 

If you’re a British startup, Creative Business Cup UK is your entry point to competing in Creative Business Cup Global Finals.

After completing CBC’s registration process, shortlisted finalists based in the UK will be invited to London’s Unbound Festival, on July 19th, for the UK National Finals. Finalists will have the opportunity to present their business concept to a panel of industry professionals and investors. Furthermore, this event poses a brilliant opportunity to refine your pitching skills and network with your creative peers. After the pitching process has finished, the winners will be selected based upon their creative competencies and their business’ market potential.

Those who have what it takes to succeed in the UK National Finals will then be invited – with all expenses covered – to the CBC Global Finals, held in Copenhagen on November 16th, during Global Entrepreneurship Week.
