Creative Startups Winston-Salem

Winston Salem, NC

Center for Creative Economy

Learning & Practice

The Concept

Creative Startups accelerator was built just for creatives. Intensive online curriculum, mentorship, and funding.

Who's it for?

Our ideal entrepreneur is one who is beyond the idea stage, and in prototyping or early customer acquisition. They are delivering creative solutions to customer pain and are looking to scale nationwide. 

What problem does it solve?

Creatives are often isolated and don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t get the entrepreneurial support they need. 

How does it help?

We have a robust accelerator to bring creative entrepreneurs together and stress test their businesses, resulting in scalable companies and motivated entrepreneurs. 

Program Overview

We accept up to 10 companies per year, which go through the program as a cohort. We provide 6 weeks of intensive online curriculum teaching business fundamentals, which is followed by a week long deep dive in Winston-Salem. During that week, our companies work with mentors during workshops and mentor hours. They pitch at a public demo night, and the top three companies split $50K in 0% loans, equity free.
