Recommended models to support creative enterprise

• Outcome 2: Supporting business activation If the programme is aimed at increasing the number of start up businesses, focus on incubation services for new business ideas

• Outcome 3: Knowledge exchange opportunities To develop regional/ international networks or foster collaborative links, the programme should incorporate models that seek to support partnerships in education and industry
