International Creative Entrepreneurs (ICE) offers an intensive, fully funded programme that includes a three month placement overseas, one-to-one mentoring and action learning sessions for five of Scotland’s creative leaders entrepreneurs.
Last year, six creative entrepreneurs were selected to go on placements in creative organisations or social enterprises in Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa, and India. Each was matched with an organisation who offered access to leadership development, business modelling and hands on project work.
This year, placements are available in creative organisations or social enterprises in Australia, Brazil, China, India, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey. Along with all the immense support described above, entrepreneurs will also be matched with a mentor or coach for the duration of the placement.

Applicants should be working in the arts, screen and creative industries, be based in Scotland and able to complete a placement before the end of September 2013.
