Creative Business Mentor Network 2012

We have recently announced the results of our matchmaking in this year’s Creative Business Mentor Network. From an impressive array of applications, 25 companies were selected from sectors ranging from TV & Film and Games, to Publishing, Advertising and Digital Media, to gain the rare opportunity of one-to-one mentoring with some of the most successful business people in the creative sector over the next 6-12 months. The companies range from young start-ups to established companies with years of experience. What they all have in common is a desire to improve the business side of their company without compromising their creative output.

The Mentors are passionate about the sector and volunteer their time as a way of giving something back. They share practical advice on overcoming the challenges of running a creative business and have helped a variety of creative companies build business success.

These are the companies we have on board:

  • Star Dot Star
  • Hurricane Films
  • Screenburn
  • Brandwave Marketing
  • The Connected Set
  • The Operators
  • Do Tank Studios
  • Fold 7
  • The Skinny
  • Tern TV
  • The House London
  • This is Paper
  • Less Rain
  • Shoot Media
  • Cwmni Da
  • Angel Eye
  • Icon Films
  • Switch
  • Obergine
  • Caper
  • Oliver’s Island
  • Playniac
  • Onimobi
  • Catalyst Outsourcing
  • Legendary Games

The programme includes:

  • One-to-one business mentoring in the form of ten, two-hour sessions over a 6-12 month period
  • An induction workshop at the start of the programme to help mentees get the most out of their mentoring sessions
  • Workshops and events designed to meet other members of  the Network
  • Coaching support – in addition to mentoring support mentees will have access to an executive coach

We will be updating this blog with news of the Network, as it will no doubt provide important insights into how to get the most out of a mentor and turn around a creative business.
