Concept to Customer: Connecting Partners and Catalysing Investment - York is the second in a series of experimental events organised by Creative Industries KTN (CIKTN) in conjunction with Cartezia.
The workshop will bring together Creative & Digital Technology SMEs, Large Media and Corporates from Creative Industries with investors and funders and will be curated by Dr Uday Phadke (CIKTN’s Investment Theme Champion).
Our overall aim for the event is to explore new ways of facilitating collaboration across Creative Industries sectors, technologies and with investors. Specifically in the context of generating new projects and partnerships as the basis for delivering innovation and securing funding using the RiffStream# methodology.
The day will explore two key themes driving new business development and growth:
Morning Session: Open Source Models/Archive materials (primarily of interest to organisations/businesses in the education, culture and heritage sectors).
Afternoon Session: Cross Platform and Trans Media Business Models (primarily of interest to the entertainment and gaming industries).
