Event description

Description

Wouldn't it be great to meet someone whose insight could become your foresight? This CQ After 5 event aims to introduce people starting or building businesses or working freelance in the creative sector to people who have been there before. A mentor is not a business adviser who can advise you on specific courses of action but someone with knowledge of business and/or experience in your sector. Someone who can act as a sounding board for your ideas and challenges and draw upon their own expertise, wisdom and contacts to help you along.

This evening is an oportunity to meet and chat with potential mentors. If you meet someone you think will be able to help you, you may be able to access funding to cover or contribute towards their fees. The application process will be explained at the event and forms part of the dedicated business support available to eligible entrepreneurs and SMEs through the Big House project (please read details of the programme and eligibility below).

Book your ticket to this free event early. When you click through to register, the form will ask some details about yourself and your business so we can try to match you with potential mentors on the night.

Are you working mainly in the creative or digital industries?

This event is on Wednesday 27th September and is for people mainly working in the creative sector. If you are mainly working in the digital sector, the same event is running for you on Tuesday September 26th and you should book via this link.

It is up to you to choose whether you fall mainly into the digital or the creative sectors and there is obviously overlap between them, but this is a rough guide we will use to invite potential mentors to each evening.

Digital

Film, TV, video, radio; IT, software and computer services, including games and apps

Creative

Crafts, product, graphic and fashion design, photography, music, performing and visual arts.
