Creative economy is present in just few Russian cities. However, recent development trends in Europe suggest that the creative industries hold the future of economic and social growth. Many Russian cities either have no creative economy or an inefficient one. Specialists often lack knowledge and investments to launch a creative enterprise and an emerging creative industries community is not strong enough to support a fledgling entrepreneur. Recently many European countries has launched a variety of state programs to support the creative economy, to help entrepreneurs start their business and to lobby the community's interests. ? Can this state program model be applied in Russia? ? Do Russian creative entrepreneurs need to unite to defend their common interests? ? How can authorities help entrepreneurs to work and develop effectively? ? What community development opportunities do creative clusters offer? Russian and German creative entrepreneurs will address these and other topics.
