We are experienced process facilitators executing conferences, workshops, camps, strategic processes, citizen meetings and think tanks based on design thinking methodologies. Using acknowledged conceptual frameworks we drive vision and strategy processes as well as concept development and ideation in a range of areas. It is our goal to enable that different stakeholders become involved and actively participate in key processes.
We provide strategic communication services within branding, graphic design, video, photography, digital solutions, PR and marketing. Co.Creative is not your usual advertising agency. Our approach is to do things that naturally earn the desired attention. Combining storytelling with “storydoing” we use events and prototypes to walk the talk and get messages through – backed by real stuff.
Co.Creative develops and executes interdisciplinary and crossborder projects with a special focus on circular economy, green transitioning, sustainable business, green construction, food projects and the creative sector. Project services include project development from initial ideation, partnership creation to descriptions, budgetting and fundraising. We use our branding skills to give projects a communicative edge and assist on marketing and PR to ensure projects get visibility.
We design and execute startup programmes and platforms to accellerate preseed and seed startups. We have a long experience working with startups and SMV’s and with a special focus on building concepts around sustainability and circular economy. Our knowhow spans the execution of accellerators and design sprints for groups and individual teams and building physical startup hubs.
We have indepth knowhow of policy and activities to kickstart local startup ecosystems involving a broad range of stakeholders from entrepreneurs to established businesses and other stakeholders..
Also, we work with individual teams and provide assistance in concept development, business plan modelling, crowdfunding, investor communication and pitches.
We do integrated planning and execute citizen-driven development of regions, towns and local communities for sustainable living, especially in rural regions. We see ourselves as an external R&D department for those communities and regions that choose to disrupt the dominant ideas about centralisation and urbanisation – and instead go for local developments, seeing rural areas and smaller towns as potentials for economic growth, nature-based experiences and sustainable modes of life.
Our work on rural-urban transformation is rooted in the systemic design approach identifying and activating local ressources in local communities, while creating new connections between countrysides, towns and cities. People is always at the center of our work connecting local ideas and insights with professional architects, designers, engineers, planners and businesses to create meaningful transformations of landscapes, built environments and local ecosystems.
We experience a rennaissance for the life in countrysides where digital infrastructures, sharing economy, access to knowledge and democratic, decentral production technology opens new possibilities for social, economical and environmental development in peripheral areas.
We are dedicated to finding ways of reviving small scale local food producers and bring back diversity, ecofriendliness and ressilience to Nordic farm regions.
To reshape the startup culture of farming we advise on and co-develop iniatives and platforms that allow a new generation of organic farmers and local food producers to start up. We provide insights on the field of community supported agriculture and crowdfunding for sustainable food production as new ways of creating viable business models for food and farm startups.
We support regions with ambitions for growing the local food landscape including initiatives and platforms to give new farm startups access to land, machinery and communities of collaboration.
To help individual teams we advise on business models and product development for small producers with a special competence on adding experience economy services and enlarging the value chain through product development going from the bulk market to direct selling of produce.
