MyCreativeEdger doing business on a global scale through ‘a creative momentum project’

One of the supports that has been made available to members of MyCreativeEdge.eu was the competitive opportunities for creative businesses to attend international trade fairs. This was available as a creative momentum project.

Through this support Kilkeel based design agency David Henderson Design was able to send two staff members to the Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal. This opportunity allowed David and Paul from DHD to glean new potential avenues of business while developing a strong international contact list of potential clients and partners.


One such contact was Laurie Stach from LaunchX. LaunchX is a prestigious program which has been running for 5 years and brings together high school entrepreneurs from all over the US and world in a 4-week program each summer to grow their entrepreneurial skills and mindset while launching real startups. Following a very productive meeting over a coffee in Lisbon, Laurie invited David to MIT in Boston to deliver a series of branding workshops.

"After speaking at MIT in June and July and meeting the team behind LaunchX we were very excited about being commissioned to design the new logo, new website, the marketing materials and animating the logo. To deliver workshops to students from all around the world and be exposed to the resources available at MIT was a great experience for us a business.  "

"Thanks to the council led support through the Creative Momentum project here in Northern Ireland, our attendance at the Web Summit in Lisbon has been incredibly fruitful. It is once in a lifetime opportunities like this that allow us to continue to grow the business internationally while justifying our ambition as a design agency capable of competing on a global stage.”"
