Why creative startups?

The creative industries are catalysts of creativity and innovation. In New Zealand they contribute 3.5 billion to the local economy according to a report prepared by PwC for WeCreate.org.nz. Often combining artistic, business and technological creativity they trigger exciting new ideas and enhance the value of products, services, and processes across many industries. Where there is creativity there is innovation and opportunity for entrepreneurship.

Advertising, Experiences technologies, Architecture, Music, Craft & Artisan, Performing Arts, Design, Publishing, Fashion, Radio & Television, Film, Video, & Photography, AR/VR, Computer Games, Software, Gastronomy, 3D printing, Wearables, Leisure Activities, Toys & Games
