Put your foot on the accelerator

Last chance for Final Year Cass students to enter Commercial Futures award sponsored by the London Metropolian University Incubator.
Date: 12 February 2014

Accelerator and Enterprise at London Metropolitan University are sponsoring the first Commercial Future Awards for final year Cass students.

The Awards provide aspiring creative business owners or freelancers with a support package to get the head start they need.

Accelerator and Enterprise at London Metropolitan University currently support a number of creative businesses, including luxury jewellery company Bam-B and textile and furniture designer Corrine Webb of Frame&Cover and they are keen to work with a new wave of creative students.

Entering the commercial future awards will allow students with commercially viable designs or business concepts to have their ideas analysed by experts in their field as well as creative industry specialists. The judges are not expecting a broad business knowledge but are keen to see how much the student has thought about their idea and how passionate they are about developing an enterprising career.

Not only will all students who enter receive valuable feedback but the winners will also receive award packages that will provide support for graduating students as they begin their independent careers.

Prizes include:

  • A guaranteed place on the Hatchery Programme at Accelerator
  • A 1-to-1 career session with the Creative Enterprise Manager
  • Sale space at a London Met Student Entrepreneurs Market Day

This competition is only open final year students and the last date for entry in 10th of February.
