Are you a young creative who is building a business?The HUB@Goethe might be just the thing for you! The Goethe Institut Johannesburg is offering an intensive mentorship programme for cultural and social start-ups, which takes entrepreneurs on a journey of developing the foundation of their companies.

HUB@GOETHE is a mentorship programme for cultural and social entrepreneurs who have great ideas with a lot of potential, but are lacking the hands-on entrepreneurial skills to get their businesses off the ground.  The programme will run from May to October 2022.

This six month cultural entrepreneurship programme focuses on business and personal development. The programme follows the Design-thinking process which takes the entrepreneurs on a journey through envisioning, empathising, modelling, prototyping, validating and pivoting.

The programme consists of different formats ranging from peer-to-peer learning to one-on-one sessions. The Learning Workshop opens each new month and introduces the content that will be explored. The Masterclass gives the entrepreneurs the opportunity to share best practice facilitated by experienced practitioners in their respective industry. Business Helpdesk provides technical and practical knowledge on how to run a sustainable business. Feedback Friday creates a space for constructive feedback and evaluation of the month. The Business Boost Camp is an intensive intervention that takes the entrepreneurs through the entire Design thinking process in four days.
