The Goethe-Institut’s Imagination Nights are closely tied to the Hub@Goethe mentorship program for cultural and creative entrepreneurs. Participants get the chance to present their business idea to the wider public and choose the topic and format themselves.
In the “What Is Wealth?” edition, Bakary Diakitè used the audience to imagine the first stakeholder meeting of his company “Afreeky”. He asked the attendants to give him feedback on important questions, therefore letting the audience take part in the painful process and realities of creating a start-up.
Lethlogile Motaung presented her company “Modi Isago”, which offers tailormade financial advisory service for creatives, since she realized how many creative and cultural entrepreneurs lack basic financial knowledge and tend to shy away from the cold numbers game.
It is envisioned that Imagination Nights will become a platform for the young entrepreneurs of Hub@Goethe to present their ideas to the wider public and discuss challenges they are facing with the audience. Speakers are encouraged to make their presentations as interactive as possible. Past Imagination Nights have included music performances, photo shoots, exhibitions, a live stream as well as a graphic recording.
Save the Date: The next event will be on the 29th of May.
‘Goethe’ are in the process of selecting the next cohort for the upcoming Hub season and the topic will be announced prior to the event. Further details and information can be found on the Institut’s site.
