Application Deadline: Mar 31, 2022

For 29 years the Deutsche Bank Awards for Creative Entrepreneurs has helped creatives bring their ideas to life.
Partnering with MeWe360, the programme aims to enable and celebrate talented 18-30 year olds driven to make positive social impact through their creative enterprise.

Application Procedure

Entrants:
— Must be between 18-30 years old. They should have turned 18 by the time applications open on January 13, 2022, and not older than 30 years old by June 29, 2022. If applying as a group, then the majority of the main applicants must fulfill these criteria.
— Can either apply with a well thought out idea or with an enterprise that has already launched.
— Must be able to demonstrate that a key driver for the business is to create positive social impact.
— Can be a not-for-profit, commercial idea or enterprise.
— Must own a material share in the business and be responsible for the direction and leadership of the organisation. This would normally include holding the title of CEO, Founder or Co-Founder. If applying as a group, then at least one applicant must hold title of CEO, Founder or Co-Founder.
— Must be able to demonstrate that the enterprise is within the creative industries or will create a clear service in support of the sector.
— Must be applying with an enterprise they wish to grow, rather than wanting support for a one-off project.
— Must commit to dedicating a minimum of 20-hours a week to the business in the 12-months after receiving the award, and to attending a two-day residential for wider group sessions and training.
— From January 13, 2022 until June 29, 2023 applicants must be legally resident in the UK. If applying as a group, then all of the applicants must be legally resident in the UK within this time.
