Creative Informatics - Resident Entrepreneur Discovery Workshop

  • 7 Nov 2019
  • 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Inspace, The University Of Edinburgh, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AB

longside the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University and CodeBase, Creative Edinburgh are partners on Creative Informatics. Through five key funding programmes and regular events, Creative Informatics enable creative individuals and organisations to explore how data-driven technologies can enhance their work. 

Are you a creative individual or a small team looking for the time, space and funding to develop a new data-driven product or service?

Do you have initial ideas about innovative uses of data in the creative industries but need collaborators to take your ideas further?

Resident Entrepreneur Discovery Workshops are fun and informal sessions designed to give participants more information on applying to be a Creative Informatics Resident Entrepreneur.


Successful Resident Entrepreneur applicants will receive funding of up to £12000 and a placement with a Host Organisation in Edinburgh/South East Scotland that will provide office space and mentoring for the duration of their residency. Resident Entrepreneurs will work independently within Host Organisations, however, there will be plenty of opportunity for mutually beneficial knowledge exchange.

If you are interested in applying as a Resident Entrepreneur but aren't sure where to start, the Creative Informatics team can help you identify and articulate potential projects and host organisations to support your application.

Workshops will start with short presentations from the CI team and current Resident Entrepreneurs, followed by workshop activities where you can explore and develop your ideas with others. After the workshop, members of the CI team will also be available for 1-1 chats about your application. By the end of the session, participants should have a better understanding of the Resident Entrepreneur process, and leave with ideas and resources to help them develop their Resident Entrepreneur applications.

Resident Entrepreneur Discovery Workshops are open to anyone working in the creative industries in Edinburgh and South East Scotland.
