At the end of the last century, creative industries became the strategic engine for growth, for creating new jobs and for strengthening the culture of societies in developed countries. The contribution of these industries to the GDP of most European countries is invariably between 2% and 5%, and their contribution to the creation of entrepreneurship in Europe is one of the most significant. Undoubtedly, the knowledge, skills and abilities of entrepreneurs in these industries play an extremely important role in economic growth and the prosperity of society.
