Art&Tech: Funding For Startups in Creative Industries
February 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Our first community meetup on “Improving Corporate Culture Through Art” was a great success, and now we are happy to announce the next gathering for startups, art lovers, innovators and experts making their way in creative industries. This time, we will talk finances and how to raise funds in creative industries.
The culture and art technology market is rapidly advancing with more and more startups leveraging tech for enhancing cultural experience, introducing new ways of education, fighting art forgery and much more. However, building a successful product in creative industries is a tough nut to crack – the market is illiquid, institutions are still hesitant to introduce new technologies into the common workflow, and often investors don’t see a return.
Join us on February 21st at 630 PM, and hear from startup founders, investors and funding experts on tips, hurdles, successes in making creative industry products commercially successful.
18:30 – 19:00 – meet & greet
19:00 – 19:40 – panel discussion on raising funds in creative industries with startups, investors and funding experts
19:40 – 20:30 – networking
