In a disruptive, always accelerating and fast changing world, we as a society, are witnessing the rise of the globalisation and other emergent economies. With the exponential growth in use of technology, there are greater demands the need for technical skills that are complimented by creative, communicative, critical thinking, innovative, and collaborative abilities. The BCT is about students creating and promoting technology platforms for start-ups working in the creative economies. Start-up teams will use these platforms to host, manage, distribute and monetize the creative outputs. There is also a small focus on using and exploring new technologies to enhance their platforms with custom made features or assets.
