If you want to make a living through your passion, come along to the Starterscafé! Every week, we take a deep dive into the do’s and don’ts of doing business. That means bookkeeping, setting your rates, applying for funding, taxes, building your portfolio and raising your profile. At the AHK Starterscafé we’ll show the right way – the smart way – to get off to a flying start. It’s free for currents students and recent graduates! Want to join us? 

The AHK Starterscafé is a pop-up café in AHK Culture Club, full of extra-curricular workshops. Grab a drink at the bar and get to know current and former students who – just like you- want to live from their creativity. At 7pm an inspiring teacher will start sharing all the tricks of the trade. Monday in English, Tuesday in Dutch. The agenda items below tell you what is going on the upcoming months. Register now!

What you’ll get from this session 
The future’s beckoning. Your head’s buzzing with ideas. So, what next? This evening you’ll learn all about the first essential steps to getting your project financed. What are the building blocks for an impressive project plan? What’s a budget and financing plan, and what are they for? What are the basics a project financer looks for in these plans? You’ll also learn about various kinds of fundraising, including subsidies, crowdfunding and friend systems.
