Is it for me?

You need to:

  • be 18-30 years old
  • be focused and ambitious
  • have a strong idea or an existing business in the creative industries
  • want to create positive social impact through your enterprise

You don’t need to:

  • have already set up your business. We help people translate ideas into reality as well as grow existing enterprises.
  • be experts in business. You just need to be ready to grow with your idea.
What do I need to do?

First stage of application: 

You will need to answer questions about your idea or business on our short online application form as well as send us a short video (60 sec max) where you describe your idea. Have a peek at the questions here.


Second stage of application: 

If you get past the first stage, you will be invited to pitch to our distinguished (but friendly) industry panel. This is your chance to bring your application to life.


Final stage: 

If you reach this stage, you will pitch again to our finals panel.
