Starter for 6 Celebration Event

Starter for 6

Starter for 6 is a business training and investment programme for creative industry start-ups.

To apply for a place on the programme you must have an innovative idea, product or service. Since 2009, we have helped a hip hop dance video-sharing platform, a Scottish ski manufacturer, an agency that designs and produces unique food and drink experiences and many other participants across the creative industries.

The Starter for 6 programme is resting in 2016 so there will be no application process. We appreciate this may be disappointing but we hope to return with a revised offer.
