Life in the lead-up to graduation can be daunting at the best of times, not least for students of the arts. Finding your path as a creative professional can be a confusing and risky process.
At Deutsche Bank we believe that being able to articulate your vision within a professional context is an invaluable skill that can turn talent into career success. For 21 years, the Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprises have offered training to thousands of students in their final year of study, helping them develop business plans for life after art school.
15 winning individuals and groups will go on to receive £10,000 in start-up capital to realise their business plan, along with business training and a mentor - to support graduates in their first year as creative entrepreneurs.
