“Although not all entrepreneurs are artists, all artists are entrepreneurs”
A new way to approach modern entrepreneurship.

On April 5th, more than 200 Mozambican artists and creative who happen to be artisan entrepreneurs  will gather at the Mozambique creatives summit event hosted by Startup Africa. Guests will include local artists, social media and digital influencers, content creators in many creative and cultural industries, founders of startups, investors, corporate representatives, programmers, designers and marketers and many other participants in the Mozambican startup ecosystem. 20 panelists, more than 200 creative artists, keynote speakers and side events provide an opportunity for networking and interaction. The summit also provides a supportive environment for artists in their early stages of development. Art and creativity projects can be presented in the form of physical and digital exhibition.

The why

ªThe creative economy has a cultural and social impact that is likely to grow. In a time of rapid globalisation, many countries recognise that the combination of culture and commerce that the creative industries represents is a powerful way of providing a distinctive image of a country or a city, helping it to stand out from its competitorsª UNESCO.

The main objective of this program is to discuss strategies on how to professionalize the creative arts, and to design new careers, understand intellectual property issues, equip young people for jobs of the future and non-existent jobs, and the most importantly is to create a local ecosystem of creative and content creators. Discussions  on how the creative ecosystem is critical in setting the agenda, values and vision for Africa going forward, and how collaborations on creative projects on digital and emerging tech platforms is a key enabler for local creative economy and ecosystem growth. If you are serious about building a sustainable artistic career, join us and be inspired and empowered by some of the most respected voices in the Mozambican creative and cultural industry and data-driven content creators.
