The Forum for Financing Creative Business (FFCB) is a pioneering one-day seminar organized by Enterprise Creative. The FFCB will hold on April 12th in Lagos. The guiding theme of the Forum is: Towards Greater Understanding, Better Dialogue and New Business. “We decided to host this Forum because of the continuing divide between the financial and creative sectors and the perennial problems of access to capital, monetization of content and protection of revenue streams for creative entrepreneurs,” says Nkiru Asika, CEO of Enterprise Creative.

Lead sponsor of the Forum for Financing Creative Business is Asset & Resource Management Company Ltd (ARM). “We are delighted that a financial company of such depth and breadth of experience as ARM is supporting the Forum and showing a keen interest in the creative sector,” adds Ms Asika.
