Glasgow Creative Accelerator showcase v3

Glasgow-born architect, author and television presenter, Michael Angus, will appear at Elevator’s Glasgow Creative Accelerator Showcase to inform and inspire the next generation of Founders, who will be presenting their own work at the end of programme digital event.

Known for being a judge on BBC Scotland - Scotland’s Home of the Year, and with links to other creative interests, Michael will be kicking-off the event with insight into his life and work while discussing why – now more than ever – we need to support the visionary artists and makers, designers, game developers, storytellers and range of business people who make up Scotland’s eclectic creative industries.

Free to attend, the showcase will take place over Zoom on Wednesday 2nd June, between 2pm to 4pm. Our creative companies will be presenting their business ideas to peers, partners, supporters and potential customer networks. The event will give an opportunity for each to detail the highs and lows of their journey to date - from developing their curiosity and growth mindset practices, plans, strategies and future goals.

The Glasgow Creative Accelerator powered by Elevator was launched earlier this year to help drive the evolution of the creative sector. Forming part of the Glasgow City Council’s Business Growth Fund Programme, we offer targeted creative support with an innovative approach.
