Description

Design makes the world go round. Or does it?

Creativity powers up the UK economy, but when you are a designer looking to start a business, the support you get is remarkably scarce.

The Surgery, by Creative Entrepreneurs, is here to fix that.

For this special edition, in partnership with London Design Festival, we have invited a panel of experts in marketing, legal and finance to share their experience working with creative enterprises, and to say it how it is.

After the panel discussion, our experts will host ‘mini-surgeries’, giving you the chance to ask them questions and discuss solutions with your peers, in small groups.

We will finish the evening with drinks, nibbles and a bit of creative networking. Join us at the beautiful Second Home Spitalfields Rooftop for an evening of inspiration, learning, and some all-important hard truths!
