Northern Creative Youth #2

Northern Creative Youth #2

The Nerve Centre along with Organisations in Sweden, Norway and Finland have created a Northern Periphery Programme 2nd stage project called NORTHERN CREATIVE YOUTH #2 which is aimed at encouraging and promoting young entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial approach and multidisciplinary collaboration. The overall objective is to increase the potential for growth and employment in rural and remote areas of the northern periphery, using the creative industry as a catalyst to create better conditions and business opportunities for young creative entrepreneurs and SMEs.

NoCry2 forms creative clusters based on needs and competences and encourage niche young entrepreneurs/companies in the creative industries to cross-collaborate, adding value to each other through the contribution of complementary skills. This innovative approach to creative young entrepreneurship is expected to see materialize new and innovative products and services, which will allow the entrepreneurs to broaden and diversify their portfolios, thus strengthening their competitiveness and ability to meet the demands of the market and potential new clients with knowledge and multi-skills.

The expected main outcome of the project is a business support service for young entrepreneurs in the creative industries, developed especially for and in collaboration with them, built on knowledge gained from them during activities carried out during the course of the project; tested, assessed and adjusted according to the needs expressed by the actual target group. A combination of online interaction and face2face meetings are used to encourage and facilitate multidisciplinary collaboration and cross-sector knowledge exchange. The service consists of three elements: the Real Factor, the Cloud Creative Community and the Integral tools briefcase; a combination of real-life activities/interaction, ICT and new media, and a basic methodology for encouraging and promoting creative youth entrepreneurship solutions.
