Radically different help and support for creative business projects

This week we announced The FuseBox Amp. We’re searching for six of the most promising and ambitious people who are in the process of starting innovative creative or digital business projects, and providing them with four weeks of radically different learning and support unlike anything Brighton has seen before.

We are looking for people who have started creative business projects that are still at an early stage and have a need for support. Their project might be:

  • a start-up,
  • a new product or service in an existing business,
  • a project to pivot a business from one business model to another.

We don’t care about their background or how much experience they have. We are interested in the person they are today, and the impact they want to make in the future.

Do you know anyone working on an early stage creative/digital business project who might be interested in applying? If so, please do forward this on and encourage them to apply.

You can drop me a line if you have any questions.

Free event: Using freedom and democracy to build an incredible company

Monday 10 Dec, 7pm – 9pm, NixonMcInnes Offices, Brighton. FREE.

How do famously successful companies like Zappos and Valve Software create such damn amazing places to work that innovate, delight customers and generate big profits? The key to success is abandoning the dominant mindset of fear in business and instead embracing freedom, possibility, and trust. With this mindset, great companies use democratic principles like decentralisation, transparency and dialogue to set their people free to do amazing things, and reap enormous rewards.

Tom Nixon (me!) ambassador for WorldBlu and co-founder of NixonMcInnes – certified as one of the Most Democratic Workplaces in the World every year since 2009 – will reveal how to adopt the right mindset for business success, and explain the 10 principles of organisational democracy, with lots of ideas that you can immediately take back into your company. And as it’s nearly Christmas there will be mince pies.

Thank you to Wired Sussex for supporting this event.
