FuseBox is a new learning and support centre for start-ups and existing businesses in the creative and tech sector based in New England House. It launches on the 11th April.
The project, which has received initial funding as part of an international EU project called ReCreate brokered and administered by the City Council, will be exploring new approaches to business thinking in the creative, digital and IT [CDIT] sector.
Some of the planned activities include:
- Hosting and providing assistance to start-ups from the CDIT sector
- Delivering learning and support to existing creative and digital companies and freelancers
- Providing a venue and facilities to creative and digital community groups
- Acting as an influential knowledge hub for disruptive business thinking
The FuseBox will be underpinned by a collaborative and cross-disciplinary approach to business support, drawing inspiration from a range of sources.
As part of the Brighton Fuse project, Wired Sussex has engaged with D-school at Stanford, Hyperisland, Kaos Pilots, BIMM here in Brighton and others to understand how they have developed new and effective learning models [see earlier story].
