Running a creative company isn’t something they teach you in art school or business school. It’s a tricky business in a terrain that constantly changes and is already saturated.

Good thing there are those who already tested the waters for you. And now they’re bringing their learnings and training at the second edition of CREATE Philippines on Sep. 22 to 23 at the Globe Tower, Bonifacio Global City. It’s an event featuring masterclasses, portfolio exhibits, and networking organized by the export promotion arm of the Department of Trade and Industry, Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM).
