Empowering creative projects with Artbox

Artbox Pre-Accelerator transforms creative projects with business plan into projects that are ready to launch and make insights and strategies into action. The program is now in progress.


Innovative pre-accelerator for creative businesses

The Artbox Pre-Accelerator has been put into motion to support the 9 creative projects that successfully completed Artbox creative incubator and became recipients of GIZ and Creative Armenia seed funding. Through practical deliverables and weekly workshops and one-on-one consultations with mentors, the pre-accelerator will challenge the grant-winning teams to master project and team managerial, financial, sales, and marketing tools necessary to launch their projects.
