We connect, empower & inspire!

June 28-29 2021 in Copenhagen

Join us for two days of innovation, creation, and knowledge
when we bring together creative businesses and everyone
with a passion for entrepreneurship and innovation 
– from all over the world.

BRIGHT is for anyone interested in how to strengthen the cultural and creative industries and how these sectors can contribute to innovative solutions in all parts of society – not least to sustainable development.

We focus on the creative professions, because they are the future. Their ideas and their ability to transform traditional sectors and establish relations across languages and borders are key to many of tomorrow’s global challenges.

BRIGHT offers unique networking opportunities across sectors and borders. You will meet creative minds, startups, companies, investors and opinion-makers from all over the world.

The program highlights the latest trends, innovations, and developments in the cultural and creative industries and presents top relevant panel discussions, workshops, and keynotes.

Furthermore, you will experience the Global Finals of the world’s only global competition for creative startups, Creative Business Cup, where startups from 75+ countries come to Copenhagen to network and pitch in front of a live jury, competing to become no. 1 creative startup of the year.

Sign up to our newsletter to stay tuned on the program and BRIGHT speakers.

What really drives me to come back here is seeing the passion that people bring to bear in terms of their concepts, their ideas and their innovation from all over the world

Being part of Creative Business Cup is the best thing that has happened to us since we started our company. I would wish for every startup that they could get the chance to be part of this amazing event.

Creative Business Cup is both a celebration of ideas and sort of a lab for creativity. The startups, investors, and jurors will open your mind to new ideas and new possibilities that will change the way you think. This event will help you understand that creativity is not just art — it’s everything you do in business, in leadership, and in life.

(…) Innovation challenges and Creative Business Cup help attract the brightest minds and focus on solving real problems. The setup is a demonstration of how small and big businesses can work together to create real impact through innovation.
