Doug Richard’s School for Creative Startups was born from the desire to help creative people learn from their craft. Doug believes that it is far more achievable (and fun) to teach creative people business skills, than to teach business people how to be creative.
With that in mind we utilise interactive and visual teaching methods and tailor make our programmes to match the needs of the creative community. Our face-toface and online instruction covers everything from how to start a business through to finding investors, and everything in between.
School for Creative Startups is an intensive, hands-on teaching and support mechanism for early stage creative businesses during their first and most vulnerable year, when the majority of start ups fail. It is our mission to help creative businesses succeed.
