Creative industry promotes transformation

How can companies in Brandenburg increase their competitiveness? A working lab.

The major challenges of our time also require many companies in Brandenburg to adapt: new strategies, business models and processes are often needed and creativity is required! Fortunately, there is a diverse creative industry between Prignitz and Spreewald.

In a working lab, creatives, entrepreneurs and transformation experts are developing approaches to make collaboration between the traditional economy and the creative sector more frequent and fruitful.
