Creative Business Boost

Creative Business Boost


Small businesses create workplaces, revive the economy, and serve as a testing lab for innovations. Small creative businesses are one of Ukraine's most dynamic exports. We believe that creativity and inventiveness define the future, so we designed Creative Business Boost for all the dark horses of business.

The programme is a springboard for the unwavering growth of creative business, where the owners of stable enterprises will get everything to bring their craft to the next level. From EUR 10,000 to the community of compatriots — we will assist in expanding to the foreign market, launching a new product, or transferring the production in-house. You will get consultations with business experts and meetups with fellow creative entrepreneurs to discuss the challenges and make sure you are moving in the right direction.

EUR 10,000 on creativity

Only you know what is best for your business. Become the first Ukrainian B-corporation, update the machinery, open your showroom abroad, or refresh the branding – we will support any idea within EUR 10,000.

10 hours of tailor-made business consultations

Make sure you are moving in the right direction during consultations with business experts. Ready-made solutions are not our choice, your request is what matters: together we can optimise the organisational structure, adapt the financial model, design new products, or decide on the markets to start with international expansion. After four months, you will test the hypotheses and adjust the action plan.

15+ years of experience in business

Our consultants have 15+ years of experience, aspiring businesses, and an understanding of how to unleash their clients' potential. We work with Volodymyr Vorobey, Inna Shynkarenko, Kostiantyn Vorobiov, Olena Kobylianska, and Oleksandr Romanishyn, as well as mentors from the EU that we choose based on your request.

3 meetings with compatriots

You are entering the space of support and mentorship. In four months of regular networking meetings with the same creative daredevils as you are, you will get acquainted, discuss pains, and share life hacks and failures. To make sure we stay focused, we invite a professional facilitator.

12 indomitable and creative

We welcome applications from independent music labels, city media, photography schools, playback theatres, eco-ceramics brands, and other mature businesses that know how to monetise creativity. A finished product, a trusted team, and a motivation to keep working during the war is a must.

This is for you!

We connect people and opportunities

We support professional and creative exchange between Ukrainians and their EU colleagues. This encompasses 20+ programme lines managed by us and a constantly increasing database of the best opportunities offered by other European organizations. This is just the beginning: more opportunities, events and acquaintances are coming.

We are all over Ukraine

We are convinced that we should go where our support and information are needed the most: out in the regions. Organising Pop-Up Hubs, creative entrepreneurship in the regions is stimulated, whereas the Mobile Pavilion sets our concept on the move.
