Creative entrepreneurship conference, April 13, JADS in Den Bosch

Drukwerk

For the past four years, the Creative Entrepreneurship Lab has conducted research into entrepreneurship in the cultural and creative industry. During this project, funded by the Dutch Council for Scientific Research (NWO) and creative industries labour union the Kunstenbond, we studied how different aspects of creative entrepreneurship, such as creativity, cooperation, strategy, and results, are interrelated. This has been followed over the course of multiple years. In total, 22.000 entrepreneurs joined this research into creative entrepreneurship and the chances and challenges of this empirical setting.

On the 13th of April, we organize a conference, to discuss the results and additional research questions of this research project. We would like to invite you for the day, and especially for the morning program, which is aimed at academics. In addition, we plan to conduct an annual study, the so-called ‘creative entrepreneurship monitor’, in which several countries participate. We would like to use the occasion of this conference to start discussing this research opportunity with you, as well as the other international scholars in attendance. So far, Joris Ebbers, Simone Ferriani and Doris Ruth Eikhof have confirmed their presence. With this creative entrepreneurship monitor, we aim to study the attitude, identity, ambitions, organization and business outcomes of creative entrepreneurs.

The location is Jheronimus Academy for Data Science (JADS), Sint Janssingel 92, located in the beautiful medieval city centre of ‘s-Hertogenbosch. The morning program looks like this:

ABOUT THE TOPIC

DESIGN ROADMAPPING is for anyone interested in design, strategy and innovations and its wonderful combination that can be found in a design roadmap. For designers, strategists and innovators alike, we compiled a design book to guide you on your journey of roadmapping the future, with the land marks of products and services you envisioned together with a team of innovators. A journey that can start with uncovering new trends, scouting for new technologies, and mapping the values on the roadmap. Along the way, you can map a future vision, frame the time pacing and create the pathways towards it.

In this talk Lianne Simonse will share some of the essentials in design roadmapping that stem directly from her working life as an industrial consultant, roadmapper, researcher and teacher in a design school. Besides the highlights and explorations on the decision support that a roadmap can offer, she will delve into the creative challenges of trend research and future visioning that are part of roadmapping.
