In partnership with the Design Museum, Design Ventura teaches creativity and enterprise skills for life beyond school.
Teams are asked to fulfil a real world brief and pitch their ideas to design professionals like Sebastian Conran, Anya Hindmarch and Naomi Cleaver.
Students are given guided visits to the Design Museum and workshops to help them design their product. Deutsche Bank volunteers provide coaching on strategies for pricing, production and packaging.
The winning team’s design is put into production and sold in the Design Museum’s shop. All profits go to a charity of their choice.
Over 10,000 13-16 year olds have taken part in Design Ventura since 2010.
Around 250 secondary schools across the UK will participate.
