LCCM Prize for Innovation

We are excited to announce the launch of the LCCM Prize for Innovation, a brand new award for the next generation of entrepreneurs looking to launch a business in the creative industries.

The award presents a unique opportunity for individuals with a business idea to win a place on LCCM’s MA Creative Entrepreneurship course with the entire course fees waived. The prize will be given to the most enterprising candidate who shows evidence of developing an innovative business proposal. If you have a ground-breaking business, whether it’s still in development or just starting-up, get in touch.

As part of the application process, you will have your business proposal vetted by our expert panel ahead of a final pitch and presentation in July 2017. This is a fantastic opportunity to test the longevity of your idea and get great constructive feedback from successful entrepreneurs and investors.
