In an effort to combine both art and business and empower the women working in the creative industry, Entreprenelle and More Of are collaborating in the first “Creative Entrepreneurship Circle” for women on 19 June at Entreprenelle’s headquarters.
The event will include Sara Seif, co-founder of More Of, as panel moderator, as well as other panelists such as jewelry designer Alia Khafaga, founder of Artkhana Sara Gaafar, and yoga teacher and health coach Farah Nofal.
“We decided to carry out such an event because we realised that there are so many creatives out there on their own, with no grounded community to hold them together for sharing expertise, knowledge and the know how,” Sara Seif told Egyptian Streets.
“The aim is to create a creative network in Egypt and all creative people in one circle to build on each others achievements and push the creative industry forward.”
Topics to be discussed in the event will include career planning for the artistic entrepreneurs, qualities of the modern entrepreneur, types of field in the creative industry (freelancers or belonging to any creative institution) and how they work.
The event hopes to unleash the creative potential of each creative artist and to encourage them to develop their own creative businesses.
More Of is a social enterprise that aims to bring the entrepreneurial mindset to creative artists, and to help them launch their own creative enterprises or personal artistic brands and monetize from doing what they love.
Entreprenelle is also a social enterprise that aims to empower women economically by educating, training and linking them to all the resources possible to start their own businesses
