    The CEOZ Portal is the first of its kind for the Zimbabwean creative industries. Working with business leaders, government agencies and industry body representatives, we set out aspirations and plans which, in partnership with government, could accelerate growth in the creative sector.      

    For the next twelve months, the CEOZ Portal will conduct a series of researches to answer these important questions. The research will cover the entire spectrum of the globally recognised nine sub sectors that make up creative industries. Call for researchers will be released in due course. To receive alerts on Calls one must subscribe to the CEOZ Portal.

    The CEOZ Portal works with the Zimbabwe government to put creative businesses at the heart of the Zimbabwe’s productivity and growth agenda.

    We truly believe that creative sector is as vital to the Zimbabwean economy as the more traditional powerhouse industries.
