What is “C hoch 3“?

Networks and entrepreneurial competences are a prerequisite for sustainable business success for creative professionals. With “C hoch 3“ 20 creative professionals get the opportunity to network, to work in groups on their entrepreneurial personality and to gain the necessary business competences.

Over several months there will be six days of workshops. Additionally, there will be get-togethers and the opportunity for the participants to work in small groups on their own “cooperation projects“. The candidates selected by the jury participate for free in the programme.

Who can participate?

Creative professionals in sectors such as design, fashion, architecture, multimedia, software and games, video and movies, advertising, etc. or people who want to become self-employed in the creative industries can apply online for “C hoch 3“.

It is not necessary to own a trade licence, but the applicants should aim to fully fund their living expenses with the income from their creative profession. They also should have a connection with their state/region of Austria.

Application

Please note, that the “C hoch 3” programme is held in German and therefore only German applications will be accepted.

How does it work?

BOTTOM UP

Die TeilnehmerInnen entscheiden gemeinsam, was sie konkret für ihre unternehmerische Tätigkeit brauchen und welche Schwerpunkte in den Workshops gesetzt werden. Das sind etwa betriebswirtschaftliche Fragen: „Wie komme ich zu mehr KundInnen? Wie berechne ich meinen Preis?“, rechtliche Fragen: „Wie setze ich einen Vertrag auf? Wie gestalte ich Werknutzungs- rechte? Was muss ich beachten, wenn ich einen Werkvertrag mit einem/einer Kooperations- partnerIn mache?“, oder persönliche Fragen: „Wie präsentiere ich mich und mein Unternehmen besser? Wie überwinde ich meine Hemmung, mich selbst zu vermarkten? Was ist meine Leistung wert?“

PEER-LEARNING

Die Beantwortung der Fragen erfolgt durch die Gruppe selbst: Durch aktives Einbringen der persönlichen Erfahrung und des Know-Hows der gesamten Gruppe kann voneinander gelernt werden (peer-learning) – eine Ressource für die unternehmerische Tätigkeit auch nach dem Coaching. Das eigene Erleben und der Erfahrungsaustausch auf Augenhöhe stehen im Vordergrund. Nach Bedarf werden ExpertInnen, wie eine Rechtsanwältin oder ein Steuerberater, zu Fragerunden eingeladen.

GRUPPENCOACHING

In einer Gruppe von 20 TeilnehmerInnen wird in den Workshops und an ergänzenden Stammtischen ein vertrauensvolles Klima aufgebaut, das ermöglicht, offen über Herausforderungen zu sprechen und einander zu stärken.

KOOPERATION

In Kleingruppen entwickeln die TeilnehmerInnen Kooperationsprojekte in einem Zeitrahmen von etwa 15 Stunden.

PROFESSIONELLE BEGLEITUNG

Die TrainerInnen sind mit den Besonderheiten der Kreativwirtschaft vertraut und wenden methodisch sowohl Tools der Organisationsentwicklung und Unternehmensberatung als auch interaktive und innovative Methoden an. Dieser Methodenmix ermöglicht Lernen und Weiterentwicklung auf allen Ebenen der unternehmerischen Praxis.
