Starten in de creatieve sector

Online session - Starting in the creative sector

Do you want to start in the creative sector or have you just started and are you stuck? Then the online session Starting in the creative sector is for you. Designregio Kortrijk, in cooperation with Flanders DC, will guide you through the sector, tell you how to check whether your idea is a good business idea, what pitfalls to watch out for and how to develop your plans in concrete terms.

Do you have an idea or have you started in fashion or design? Then you can immediately choose the session 'Starting in fashion' or 'Starting in design' (as a designer) and receive more tailor-made information.

If you still have questions, you can (optionally) have a 1-on-1 video chat in the afternoon with experts and advisors from Flanders DC and other organisations.
