Creative Bridge

Creative Bridge is a free course for creatives in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas, run by CodeBase, which aims to demystify the tech world and its jargon, introducing participants to the building blocks of digital product development.

A pre-accelerator course, Creative Bridge is primarily designed for creatives with early stage business ideas, or no ideas, with core sessions on markets, understanding customers and pitching. Creative Bridge also hosts creative entrepreneurs from around the world, who share stories about how they made something amazing happen, and how they’ve failed.
