Cultural Entrepreneurship: The Impact of Social Networking on Success

In the ‘Creativity and Innovation Management’ (Volume 22, Issue 3, pages 307–319, September 2013) I found this interesting article about “The Impact of Social Networking on Success” in CulEnt.

I am citing part of the abstract: “[…] Because of the complex structures characteristic of the arts sector and creative industries, it is often thought that external network ties of leading managers are critical to the success of their cultural enterprises. Based on research into entrepreneurship and promoters’ activity, this study examines the influence of social network relationships on the success of cultural establishments in Germany.”

CULTUP, a program to support cultural entrepreneurship

FIBICC (who I have mentioned before in this post) creates CULTUP, a program to support cultural entrepreneurship for Spanish nationals under 35 years old living in the UK.

[…] In this first phase of the program, young Spaniards living in Latin American and European countries will have the opportunity to specialize in management of cultural industries. The program will have two complementary phases, a face-to-face part (which will include training sessions and networking) and another on-line (which will involved a cultural entrepreneurship course and personal project advice).

Insight into China’s creative industries

After a break from the culent@athens talks, I am back with great Cultural Entrepreneurship News :-).

I’ll start this week with a new report published giving companies looking to China for new business opportunities valuable information on the country’s cultural and creative industries.

[…] ‘The China Cultural and Creative Industries Reports 2013’ is an overview of China’s cultural and creative industries (CCIs) written by Chinese academics but now available in English to a global audience. It is designed to address the gaps in the existing literature, including policy changes, emerging trends and investment opportunities of the CCIs in China to help individuals, businesses and organizations wanting to compete in this area. The reports provide access to research and critical perspectives on CCIs on an industry-by-industry basis. Areas researched in this first collection include film, news and publishing, broadcasting and TV, animation and games, new media, advertising, fine art and performing arts.
