DBACE winners receive bespoke enterprise training

This week twelve lucky graduating art students undertook enterprise training and business mentoring as part of the Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise (DBACE). The five category winners and five runners up of the 2016 awards each received a year-long business mentor from Deutsche Bank alongside two days of small business training to help them navigate the challenges of self-employment.
Since 1993, DBACE has helped hundreds of final year and recently graduated arts students negotiate the challenges of self-employment, as part of Deutsche Bank’s commitment to drive positive change in society through Made for Good, its global enterprise programme. More than 200 business ventures have been launched as a result, and many more students have been inspired to consider setting up a project or enterprise of their own.

"I've found the training incredibly useful, we've covered really practical skills such as how to approach branding, marketing, legal structures and target markets. The sessions were a mix of teaching, workshop tasks, guest speakers and discussions, it created a positive environment for all the artists and businesses to help each other explore and develop our ideas. As a film-maker it's hard to know how to take my work to the next stage and put my artistic work into a business context. It has opened me up to the network of support that is available to me as a DBACE winner" Thomas Payton-Greene, samaanata, winner film 2016

Applications for DBACE 2017 will open shortly visit for more information.
