Creative Business Builder Programme 

The Creative Business Builder is specially devised for entrepreneurial artists and creatives in East London.

A programme designed to support people to make a step change in their creative business with advice, support and encouragement from the programme facilitator, Jo Sealy, from Artillery, and from the Creative Business Builder cohort. 

Developed in partnership with To Market, the first cohort of 24 creative businesses completed the programme in September 2023, and now we are witnessing those creative entrepreneurs implementing new strategies to build their customer and client base.


See below for details of the 24 creative businesses selected. 


This business development opportunity was designed for artists and creative freelancers, sole traders and small business owners in Waltham Forest.

We received twice as many strong applications to the 2023 programme than we could accommodate. 


Imagine how many creative entrepreneurs we could support if this programme continued and expanded further afield! 

If you are a funder or commissioner looking to support creative businesses to thrive, please do get in touch to discuss making further rounds of this programme a reality.

Creative Business Builder Cohort 2023

The Creative Business Builder was delivered in partnership with Jo Sealy of To Market, with thanks to support by Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund, funded by Westfield Stratford City and delivered by Foundation for Future London.
