Creative and coworking spaces: passion or successful business? - STARTUP CONNECT (KS1016)

On April 10, 2019 Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art (St. Petersburg, Russia) will host our StartUp Connect public talk “Creative and coworking spaces: passion or successful business?”

Creative and coworking spaces are now widespread, fashionable and popular. However, before starting any new project it’s worth answering the questions if the investment will pay off and if there are similar successful international cases. The market may already be too competitive and the owners may be facing administrative barriers or lack of support.

We invite you to attend the event where these and other issues related to the development of creative spaces will be discussed and key international initiatives will be presented.

Participation is free of charge (after registration and confirmation of the organizer). Further details and registration are available here:

The event will take place under StartUp Connect project funded by the European Union, the Russian Federation and the Republic of Finland in the framework of South-East Finland-Russia CBC 2014-2020 programme. The project is executed by the following consortium: Cursor - Kotka-Hamina Regional Development Company (FIN) (Lead partner), ITMO University (RUS), XAMK - South-East Finland University of Applied Sciences (FIN), St. Petersburg Foundation for Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Development (RUS).
