In the study, we analyze the importance of clusters’ economic potential in the development of creative industry. In addition, we characterize clusters’ qualitative characteristics and their ability to influence economic effectiveness and development of the companies involved in the cluster initiatives. This analysis is based on the evaluations of clusters’ activities, which we gained through conducting a structured interview; its respondents being the representatives of top management of companies active in the creative industry. The companies which were included in the research were both participants and non-participants in the cluster initiatives.
