Creative Business Cup is an annual global competition, enrolling participants from more than 80 countries from all over the world.
The competition is for creative and innovative startups and is shaped by a shared goal of all the National Partners in Creative Business Network, of connecting and empowering the cultural and creative industries worldwide.
Each year, all the national competitions culminate into Creative Business Cup Global Finals with more than 80 creative supernovas, brilliant keynote speakers, judges and investors, all coming together at the end of June, at the industry forum BRIGHT, to focus on promoting innovation and creative business efforts.
Before the global finals, all national winners receive dedicated training via a customized Creative Business Academy to help them refine and develop their ideas and concepts into sustainable businesses, and along with a variety of prizes, the forum serves great opportunities for everyone to grow their network and be inspired by all the creative and highly skilled professionals attending, as well as a unique opportunity for global exposure.
BRIGHT is a three-day forum, bringing together creative businesses and people interested in entrepreneurship and innovation from all corners of the world.
The forum aims at placing the cultural and creative industries on the political agenda by motivating, help sharpening and developing the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
