All the highlights from the second edition of The Creative Class

In a bid to continuously make a significant change in the Nigerian creative sector, The Assembly Hub with great support from The British Council, Nesta, The Creative Enterprise Programme, Sterling Bank , Grow with Google, Enterprise Development Centre to name a few, successfully delivered the second edition of the Creative Class which had sixty(60) selected participants that took part in the business transformative journey.

The programme touched on topics such as design thinking, customer loyalty, public relations, understanding the finances and the law of running a creative business. Other topics included wellness and productivity, as well as product costing and pricing. The programme also included pitching a unique business idea to prospective investors when looking to scale.

The content of each class was fully loaded with a great array of knowledge, thanks largely to the distinguished faculty we had on hand to take our participants through the intricate scope of being a creative entrepreneur. Some of our esteemed instructors included Moses Ida-Michaels of Availsys, Demilade Adesiyan of NeuBridges, Wale Ajiboye of Acumen, Ifeanyi Enukorah of Nesta, Adesola Ade-Unuigbe of Bellanaija, Alae Ismail of London College of Fashion, Temitayo Eyitayo of 24 Apparel Ltd, Odunayo Eweniyi of Piggyvest Nigeria, Seun Abolaji of Wilson Juice, Tola Obi of Centrespread Grey, Teni Majekodunmi of the Ecclectic Chique and Lanre Da Silva Ajayi

The Creative Class finale took place on, the 11th of October, 2019 where a selection of the Creative Class alumni had the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to an audience of faculty, angel investors and industry veterans with the goal of getting key feedback.

All in all the Creative Class Programme was a great experience, that allowed The Assembly draw closer to its vision of having those with creative desires attain their ambitions through their passion. We look forward to the next edition which we’re all too sure will be bigger and better.
The Assembly would love to say a big thank you to all our partners.
