Supported by the European Commission, B Creative strengthens young companies from the creative sectors in Europe. The main objective is to streamline support mechanisms for creative industries and to pilot new, specially-tailored programmes. Via the platform Howtogrow.eu, the project will establish closer links between knowledge creation, incubation, finance and clusters. MFG takes the opportunity to test new support instruments such as creative vouchers in Baden-Württemberg.
