Workshop #1 will be a mid-level workshop to help creative entrepreneurs build a business plan for their future endeavors. Our experts, John Meyers and Tabitha Martin, will help guide the canvas process and encourage you to think about who your key partners are, who your costumers are, your revenue streams and your key activities, etc.  At the end of this first session, you will have plenty of useful information to start building a strong plan for your creative business. 

Workshop #2 will be a more advanced look at the Crafty Canvas you started building during Workshop #1 and The Maker Sessions. Our experts will be there to help you lock in your plan with feedback and one on one time. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and get a solid plan in place. Our experts will be choosing 8-10 participants that were involved with both workshops to give a video pitch for our Creative Catapult event.
