Sprinting for Space to Innovate

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


The presentation provides a case study of the development of a social innovation creative economy training product and toolkit developed with SEBRAE (the Brasilian Micro and Small Business Support Service) and funded by the British Council. It was devised following two weeks of creative economy scoping visits conducted in the autumn of 2017 in Brasil. A one day micro Sprint was tested in four locations in Brazil to excellent feedback in November and December of 2017. However, we have continued to develop this Sprint product and process, subsequently rolling it out in a super condensed 3 hour version to creative entrepreneurs in Brasil and Ukraine. It offers a route to market through the jungle of business planning ideas and an example that we hope will be taken up as part of the booming Coventry creative economy.
