Students and graduates of Art Schools, who are thinking about starting their own business or have an idea for business in the creative sector, were invited to participate in a series of meetings and workshops called Startup Art. Participants had a variety of opportunities: workshops, networking, and conference – during which experienced investors with the creative sector background shared their experiences. Guests learned about Design Thinking, financial opportunities to support young creative businesses, the types of  companies operating online and the possibilities of getting an investor and how to  present their business to get him involved. Young creative people had the chance to confront themselves and to learn from entrepreneurs who have success in this field.
