About the Creative Entrepreneur Bootcamp

The Creative Entrepreneur Bootcamp will be an in-depth interactive workshop for emerging and mid-career artists who want to dig into building up their creative business. The activities and conversations from this bootcamp will help you pivot and identify a path forward both in this difficult moment and in the future. Every step of the way, you will be working sharing and learning together with your cohort and leave with realistic strategies and action steps to achieve your goals.

We will cover:

  • Building a Business Model Canvas

  • Building Buyer Empathy

  • Branding & Marketing

  • Price Structures

  • Introduction to E-Commerce
