Mentoring Programme Acceleration workshop:

Alternative Financing and company's mission

The final activity of EWA Network Mentoring Programme for emerging Female prodcuers will take place over the next weeks. It will consist of the Acceleration Workshop ‘Financing Audiovisual in Times of Transformation’.

It will offer these female entrepreneurs a tailored support for re-evaluating not only their audiovisual projects but their companies as well. By enabling participants to create suitable alternative financing options the programme will lay the foundation for improved strategic business and financing decisions, ultimately for building sustainable audiovisual companies and lucrative professional careers.

The sessions are designed in form of impulse and workshop presentations, of group- and homework and intensive individual mentoring rounds. The programme is designed to entirely take place on-line and we're proud to have Juliane Schulze as the expert conducting the sessions.

The mentoring programme is a training initiative by EWA Network supported by Creative Europe.
