Training for enterprise

Letter from Chris Powell, Chairman, NESTA, UK

I would like to draw your readers’ attention to some of NESTA’s current activity in the creative industries.

As part of our Creative Pioneer programme, we are running Insight Out, a nationwide initiative designed to help creative graduates set up their own businesses up to five years after graduation. We are also funding a new research programme that demonstrates the importance of the UK’s arts and creative industries to innovation. This promises to provide evidence to encourage investment both in this sector, and in the critical juncture where the arts, science and technology meet.
