A number of people have argued, that everyone is creative to some extent, whether or not this statement is true is an argument for another day.
What is clear is that the creative industries is certainly bigger than many people can imagine.
A study conducted by Ernst & Young estimates that the Creative Industry generated $2,250 billion in revenues (3% of world GDP) as at December 2015. Can you beat that?
This is primarily why we have decided to invite two creative giants to the 16th CFA’s Startups Hangout as speakers. It holds on the 31st of August, 2018 at GoDo.ng! Ikeja GRA.
