Supporting first steps in business
University can take young people closer to fulfilling their potential, but graduation brings new challenges.
For 23 years the Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise have helped budding creative entrepreneurs turn their ideas into reality.
How it works
Aspiring artists, designers and performers who want to launch themselves as professionals need practical and financial support.
Covering a broad spectrum of creative enterprise across five categories: Art & Photography, Craft and Design, Film, Music and Performing Arts, the Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise provide winners with startup capital, business training and mentoring to steer them through their first year in business and beyond.
Registered colleges can benefit from free information sessions and workshops. Students and recent graduates are offered free enterprise workshops held around the UK, giving them the chance to find out if self-employment could be the route for them as well as offering advice on producing a business plan.
