Supporting first steps in business

University can take young people closer to fulfilling their potential, but graduation brings new challenges.

The Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprises help young creative entrepreneurs turn their ideas into reality.

How it works

Aspiring artists, designers and performers who want to go into business need practical and financial support.

The Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprises provide winners with start up capital, business training and mentoring to steer them through their first year in business and beyond.

Each year 15 awards are made to graduates from 13 arts colleges around the UK. Workshops and one to one sessions are held on campus, giving all students the chance to find out if business could be the route for them.
