Caerphilly’s creative entrepreneurs come together for business support roadshow events

A new series of business support & networking events for the creative industry in Caerphilly has been a roaring success.

Creative Collective’s roadshow events, which gave businesses and entrepreneurs the opportunity to receive free business support sessions in their area, have been a hit in recent months.

Off the back of the popular events, business support specialist Town Square Spaces (TownSq) has teamed up with the Creative Collective community to offer a number of creative roadshow events across Caerphilly County Borough, bringing industry experts in essential business topics like marketing, HR, IPO and admin to local professionals.

The series launched in March with its first event at Shappelles in Ystrad Mynach, where exhibitors including Development Bank, Fig Tree HR, Centre of Excellence in Mobile and Emerging Technologies, and TownSq Admin were in attendance to offer insights, guidance and support to attendees.

The Caerphilly Creative Roadshow series comes as part of a new project running across the county, funded by the UK Government Levelling Up Project through the Shared Prosperity Fund.

The aim of the initiative is to champion entrepreneurship in the area by giving businesses support and resources that can help them thrive, whilst also offering a boost to the local economy.

Kevin Mansell-Abell said: “We’re proud to be partnering with Creative Collective to deliver an exciting series of free sessions which offer a huge amount of value to local businesses. The first event in Ystrad Mynach was received very positively, and it was fantastic to see so many entrepreneurs connecting and gaining the advice they need to keep developing.

“We’re excited to be bringing the event to more locations across Caerphilly so that as many local businesses as possible can reap the benefits of this free opportunity to connect with industry leaders, potential clients and partners. We’d encourage any Caerphilly-based enterprises to join us for our upcoming events in Risca and Blackwood and gain some insights that could transform your business!”

The roadshow will also be stopping at Risca on Wednesday 12 June and Blackwood on Tuesday 17 September. The event is drop-in style and runs 11am-2pm.
