NEW Entrepreneurship Foundation

Creative Capital saw the launch of the University’s Entrepreneurship Foundation. Find out more about developing innovative managers, who can combine senior leadership and entrepreneurial skills to power your future business growth. Stay at the cutting edge with world-class continuous professional development, fresh thinking and customised intensive programmes to help you meet the business challenges of tomorrow.

The Entrepreneurship Foundation complements our Hothouse research and innovation centre, which brings together industry and University professionals in a creative environment, where teams of designers, researchers and business experts can work with you to incubate projects and products. See this approach in action at our sandpit workshops on the future of music, rethinking business strategy and the challenges of convergence in the media industry.

The Institute of Advanced Broadcasting

The Institute of Advanced Broadcasting (IAB) is a research centre, focussed on the future shape and business impact of convergence in the media, telecommunications and IT industries. The IAB will work alongside broadcasters, content developers and key industry players to inform the future of media in a multiple platform world.

The IAB will be showcased at Creative Capital, explaining its work in the field of converging broadcast technologies and the impact of changes on content creation for new communications channels, today and in the future.

Creativity and Innovation on Show

This celebration of innovation and creativity will include a packed programme of events, launches, sandpits, networking sessions, exhibitions and shows. The University of Wales, Newport will be hosting Fashion Shows, launching a unique portal to help you to access the newest talent in the fashion industry – and the latest technology solutions and talent in photography.

The daily Fashion Shows showcased the new talent emerging from Newport this year. The programme has received acclaim for encouraging a wide range of fashion clothing that include collections of commercial appeal and equally feature collections that move toward the avant-garde but always demonstrate a wearable vision of the fashion future.
