Entrepreneurs Hub 2021
Meet the first group of emerging designers and entrepreneurs who took part in the Entrepreneurs Hub Programme.
Launched in October 2021, the initiative aims to support and empower the next generation of diverse design business leaders, with a focus on creative founders and designers from underrepresented backgrounds.
Over 8 weeks, participants were offered mentoring, business advice and exposure to industry leaders to help turn their ideas into viable concepts and foster a culture of experimentation and innovation.
The past year’s scheme, which ran from 4 October to 1 December 2021, celebrates and congratulates its first group of design entrepreneurs determined to unlock their potential and achieve their goals. From devices to improve work-from-home behaviours to fashion brands that empower positive thinking, to new, tactile wayfinding systems for visually impaired people, the programme acts as an incubator for new ideas from creative founders from across all areas of design.
