Creative Enterprise Tier I Spring 2017 Round Is Now Open

Deadline to Apply: January 5th, 2017

Spaceworks invites entrepreneurs with a creative/innovative business or business idea that benefits Tacoma’s community and who are seeking to grow a thriving business to apply to participate in our Creative Enterprise Tier I program.

Spaceworks’ Creative Enterprise Tier I provides relevant and meaningful business training and peer-to-peer support to the participants to systematically grow Tacoma’s creative class and generate destination quality activity that will engage and transform our community. Affordable space is also provided, dependent on availability, to serve as a training ground to test new ideas, products and services with a safety net of technical assistance and mentorship.

Selected participants will start Creative Enterprise Tier I with the training program in February 2017 and pitch a full business plan for review in May 2017. Spaceworks staff will help to launch these businesses to the streets of Tacoma.
