Now, with the goal of adding value in these uncertain times, the agency behind an array of groundbreaking pieces of work for the likes of Adidas, Levi’s, Jose Cuervo, Spotify, Ray-Ban, Glenfiddich, Bacardi and more, are sharing a startup pack full of the necessary templates and tools that the next generation of creative pioneers can use to fast track their business development.
“This is an unprecedented time,” says Duncan Maclennan, managing director of Andpeople, “where creative businesses across the board are feeling the pressure to adapt, change, or be rendered obsolete. On the flipside of this, what we know for sure, is that from this crisis a new generation of creative thinkers will emerge, new businesses, led by young people that will challenge the status quo, much like we did when we launched eight years ago.”
“In closing our business,” adds Maclennan, “we felt it fitting to extend our philosophy and its legacy for a new generation of young leaders, by giving them access to tools and simple practical elements that will bolster their growth and equip them to operate credibly and professionally.”
Maclennan says that the pack is a collection of practical business tools that Andpeople has accumulated or developed over the past eight years - simple things most aspiring young creative entrepreneurs either don't know or fail to think about. Think templates, schedules, guides, contracts and administrative tools that are fundamental building blocks of running a successful, professional organisation, equipped to grow.
“In a country that needs to support young entrepreneurs,” Maclannen concludes, “We felt it was our duty to play our part and to contribute to the growth of the creative economy by sharing practical tools and our learnings to help build the agencies of tomorrow.”
